Bao Vang, executive director of Hmong American Partnership, referred to the issue as a midlife crisis for the Hmong that has turned into an "epidemic that is sweeping the country. She and several other women said the practice would continue until male leaders in the community call it out because they have the most authority, particularly as it relates to family disputes.

"When you have leaders in the community who continue to think this is fine ... or are practicing this ... it (makes) it really hard to take your problems to them," Bao Vang said.

Bao Vang, the president of the nonprofit Hmong American Partnership, attributes these relationships to a "midlife crisis" in the community: A more educated, driven generation of Hmong women has challenged the traditional view of the obedient, domestic wife - and men, especially older ones, are chafing at the changes.

A 2014 vigil at Hmong American Partnership's St. Paul office drew more than 200 people, Bao Vang said.

Bao Vang, executive director of the Hmong American Partnership community organization, says Hmong immigrants' challenges differ from others because they came to Minnesota as refugees.

When they arrived in the U.S., many Hmong refugees had limited academic skills and struggled to understand how to make the best use of social systems to improve their lives. They also struggled to articulate the needs of their communities to the state's power brokers.
"When you are thrown into a country or place and have to make sense out of it, it's very challenging," Vang said.
Yet, meaningful and long-lasting changes to improve economic achievement for Minnesotans of color will likely require new and creative approaches, said Vang of the Hmong American Partnership. Continuing to focus on existing systems that have failed for decades is misguided, she said.
"You see the same people making the same decisions. The same decisions produce the same results. Why are we not doing something else? Vang asked, adding that she hopes for new ideas.
