This chapter evaluates the implementation of the Marriage Law in China's southwest frontier during the period from 1950 to 1953. It shows that both Han men and women in Yunnan from various ethnic minorities very frequently petitioned state institutions to resolve their family disputes. It highlights the need to further study Yunnan's political, economic, and cultural features in light of the factors identified as conducive to pursuing new rights in government institutions.
