9780230577770: Women and Gender in Twentieth-Century China (Gender and History)

Paul J. Bailey provides the first analytical study in English of Chinese women's experiences during China's turbulent twentieth century. Incorporating the very latest specialized research, and drawing upon Chinese cinema and autobiographical memoirs, this fascinating narrative account:

· explores the impact of political, social and cultural change on women's lives, and how Chinese women responded to such developments
· charts the evolution of gender discourses during this period
· illuminates both change and continuity in gender discourse and practice.

Approachable and authoritative, this is an essential overview for students, teachers and scholars of gender history, and anyone with an interest in modern Chinese history.
