Translating Feminism in China
Author: Wang Zheng Uploaded Time: 2017-04-21

As a global discourse, feminism is intertwined with the globalization of imperialism and capitalism. So, the history of feminism within a certain area is critical to our understanding of the interaction between that area and the globe, and also to our understanding of the forming of modern micro and macro processes. This book investigates China in the period from the end of the Nineteenth Century to the contemporary as a case study, and discusses problems appearing in the process.
