Women in China's Long Twentieth Century

Gail Hershatter


This guide on Chinese and women's history synthesizes recent research on women in twentieth-century China. It surveys more than 650 scholarly works, discussing Chinese women in the context of marriage, family, sexuality, labor, and national modernity. In the process, the book offers keen analytic insights and judgments about the works themselves and the evolution of related academic fields. The result is both a practical bibliographic tool and a thoughtful reflection on how we approach the past.

Keywords: Chinese history, women's history, twentieth-century China, marriage, family, sexuality, labor, national modernity
