Description - Chinese Feminism Faces Globalization by Sharon Weskoy
This book examines Chinese domestic as well as international circumstances surrounding the emergence of an independant women's movement in Beijing in the 1990s. The book especially seeks to explain how such a movement could have arisen after the repression student activists in Tiananmen Square in 1989, and places this emergence in the context of theories of social movements, civil society, and globalisation. The book goes further to outline the emergence of a feminist identity within the movement and explores the Chinese state's responses to it.
