About Us

We are 4 Hmong women talking about things that matter such as EVERYTHING!!

What’s in a name?

#hoochim is the combination of two words we feel represent the two ends of a spectrum of our experiences as Hmong women who push and question the boundaries of established systems of oppression.

Hwjchim is the Hmong word for prestige and/or honor and usually applied to males. It can be inferred that any prestige or honor a woman has is usually from her association with a male in her life. This word is also a Hmong name given to males.

Hoochie is used to describe a woman who is “easy” or dresses in a provocative manner.
