Women's dress, women's writing, women's bodies, women's work, women as portrayed by themselves and others in literature and the arts: these are among the topics addressed in this wide-ranging collection of essays written by scholars working in a number of different areas of Chinese studies. Until recently, academic studies of Chinese women inhabited the more exotic reaches of sinology. The present volume is a contribution to a body of scholarship which over the past ten years has succeeded in transforming the field.
