Directed by Dean Kanashiro, Rise of the Wahine: Champions of Title IX is a historical sports documentary chronicling the birth of the first Rainbow Wahine volleyball team at University of Hawai‘i during a time of great change for women’s equality. This is the story of the educators, athletes, and politicians who helped change women’s athletic opportunities in America, forever.


This story chronicles the untold story of a group of women from Hawai‘i who battled women’s inequality issues, leading up to and after the passing of Title IX. These women included Title IX co-author Patsy Mink and the University of Hawai‘i’s first women’s athletic director, Dr. Donnis Thompson. Title IX is a federal civil rights law in the United States of America that was passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972.
