With the global trend and the active participation and promotion by organizations and individuals from all fields who care about female issues, there has been a considerable degree of progress on substantive issues concerning female and public space in Taiwan over the recent 20 years. This is a gradual and interlocking process, especially in our capital of Taipei. In this dissertation the process of this evolvement will be clearly stated by the timeline-based recording approach. Comparisons will be made with respect to the modification of national policy in response to relevant social issues and events, and the specific presentation of its implementation in today’s public space with future prospects.
