Description - Women in the Chinese Enlightenment by Zheng Wang
Centring on five life stories by Chinese women activists born just after the turn of the 20th century, this history of Chinese May Fourth feminism seeks to disrupt the Chinese Communist Party's master narrative of Chinese women's liberation, reconfigures the history of the Chinese Enlightenment from a gender perspective, and addresses the question of how feminism engendered social change cross-culturally.
