After the Marco Polo Bridge Incident of 1937, the second Sino-Japanese War broke out in full scale. The concern among Chinese in America grew rapidly, especially for those who had family members left in China. These Chinese Americans not only faced constant discrimination within the United States, but following the incident felt further abandoned by international society. On May 9, 1938, Chinese Americans in New York took part in a parade to make their voices heard and to raise money for the Chinese efforts against the Japanese. Marchers used slogans like “To Save China, To Save Ourselves,” connecting their quest for equal rights in the U.S. to the survival of Chinese nationals in China. Here, women wearing traditional cheongsams carry a gigantic Chinese Nationalist flag as both a patriotic symbol and a practical container for catching donations thrown by the crowd.
