The Chinese Republican period, often seen as representing a continuum
between Imperial China and the People’s Republic of China, was shaped by
profound upheavals which also impacted strongly on gender relations. This
volume presents the latest research on the situation of women during the
Republican period, placing it in a historical perspective. In addition to
contributions dealing with theoretical and methodological approaches to
China-related women’s research, a broad spectrum of experiences and
discourses related to women in China is also considered: women and the
state/women and the nation, political women and their posthumous careers,
little traditions and discourses of otherness, women in social and
economic life and women’s education.
