Research Paper Update

Sunday, February 21st, 2016

At this point I am beginning to look for secondary sources to help me look at the formation of the feminist/women’s rights movement in China. I was surprised to see that there are several sources that look at gender and Chinese feminism in the Mao years as well as after it. Most of these sources address the issue of transnational and western ideas of feminism and how that interacts specifically with Chinese feminism. I am continuing to look at primary sources from party-controlled and less censored news networks but nothing especially new has come to my attention. I plan to dig through the online secondary sources as well as what the library has to offer about Chinese feminism as well as a general view of gender in China that may help me understand some of the major issues for women’s rights activists today when it comes to empowerment and equality.
