Author: Liu Renfeng Uploaded Time: 2017-06-17
In this book, the author focuses on the history of Chinese women's newspapers and periodicals, through the combination of systematic and case studies, covering three aspects: (1) Chinese women's lives over 100 years, (2) The relationships between women's publications and women's lives and social development, and (3) The impact of women's newspapers on the process of women's liberation and ideological changes, all of which can be taken as a new supplement to the study of women's history. This book not only clearly summarizes the history of the development of women's publications, but also adopts the original women's newspapers and periodicals as data sources in the whole process of research to restore the history by means of the most representative case studies in each historical period as far as possible.
