Holding Up Half the Sky: Chinese Women Past, Present, and Future Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These 21 dynamic articles by Chinese women scholars explore the limitations on women’s lives in premodern China, detail their involvement in the great political movements of the 20th century and examine how new laws have improved women’s status, yet have left them open to exploitation as China enters the global economy. With statistics and reports otherwise unavailable, they give a refreshing outlook on China’s women that is breathtaking both for the problems it confronts and for the spirit of struggle it embodies.

Synopsis:

First collection of its kind--twenty scholars explode myriad stereotypes and present the most up-to-date reseach on the status of women in China.

About the Author
