What was life like for women and girls over China's long history? What was expected of them? What was allowed? Here you can meet 22 women whose exciting stories span more than 3,000 years. Some lived traditional lives. Others are remembered for their brilliance and skills in roles rarely available to women. And there are the rebels and revolutionaries, who moved against or beyond the limits of their times. China s Daughters places these women mothers, poets, emperors, doctors, concubines, warriors, and more in historical context. It explores how family patterns, Confucian values, silk and cotton, writing, emperors, invaders, and other forces affected the status and roles of women in different eras. And it traces how Chinese women have worked for equality as part of the great changes that brought China into the modern era.
