Uploaded Time: 2017-04-30

Mankind has entered the era of globalization in the 21st century. Letting China know more about the world and letting the world knowing more about China, have become two of the most important tasks among those in academic circles. This book provides a tool for better doing so by studying the effects of the boom in foreign studies on China. The issue of Chinese women is one of the subjects of foreign studies. This is not only because, in China's long history, the status of women and culture has shown obvious uniqueness – many foreign researchers have great interest and curiosity in Chinese women because of dramatic changes in Chinese women in the past nearly half a century. This book aims to understand overseas studies on China from a new perspective. It explores the historical development and current situation of foreign studies on China from the perspective of gender studies. Although, from the overall view, women's studies in foreign studies on China are still in the margins, the academic status of the studies on Chinese women from overseas continues to increase, and its research results have gained more and more recognition.
