Women in China's Long Twentieth Century

Gail Hershatter

University of California Press

This chapter, as an epilogue, offers suggestions about the study of women in recent Chinese history, made in a spirit of creeping discomfort. The project of “engendering China” has entailed enormous excitement and inspiration for several generations of scholars Gender has pried open earlier historical conventions and narratives, disrupted them, troubled them, and made visible some of the integuments that enclosed a discursive world in which “human” generally meant unmarked male. This chapter suggests that people should cultivate several alternative habits of mind in thinking about gender in China's recent history.

Keywords:   China's history, women's studies, engendering China, gender issues
