The South Asian community in the United States has roots in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The community represents one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in the country. From 2000 to 2010 their population grew by 81 percent nationally, in Seattle the increase was 173 percent.

On May 5, Marcie Sillman sits down with Ginny Gilder, Seattle Storm co-owner, at Town Hall to discuss her new memoir "Course Correction" and how Title IX has impacted her life.

Gilder will touch on her experiences as a female athlete and Olympian, as well as the now-famous Title IX naked protest she and her rowing teammates staged at Yale in response to what they felt was unfair treatment by the university.
