New Feminism in China
  • Jiaran ZhengEmail author


The last four decades have witnessed tremendous upheavals and transformations in every aspect of Chinese culture and society, from national politics to everyday life. At the level of everyday life, some of the most obvious and remarkable of these transformations have affected, or occurred in, the realm of gender. In this book, I am always having the ambition to understand contemporary urban young women’s lives and to predict the further change of gender relations in future China under the current external forces, such as globailisation, marketisation and individualisation. Although I do not intend my analysis to be comparative or comprehensive as soon as I write ‘young Chinese women,’ I do hope that my claims could make some implications on the national trend of the gender transformation in future China.
