Women and gender studies increasingly contribute to a more differentiated
knowledge of China. This issue presents research on a variety of topics
related to women and gender in modern and contemporary China including the
question of women’s citizenship in the Republican period, health issues of
women soldiers on the Long March, the problem of and activities against
domestic violence and the revision of the marriage law. By exploring how
gender interacts with other categories and how processes of modernization
and transformation are gendered the articles shed new light on the
structures of Chinese society.
