Chinese women make up half of the Chinese population. Like women in other cultures, Chinese women’s fate has undergone tremendous upheavals in the twentieth century. This talk will review the vicissitudes of fate for Chinese women in ancient, modern, and present-day Chinese society. With a series of pictures and digital materials, the talk will cover the repression of women in ancient society, women’s liberation movements in modern times, and the impact of China’s reform and modernization upon Chinese women in the context of globalization.

Food and Tea Are Served for All Sessions.

All Are Welcome!
