Product Description


"A compelling, significant contribution to both Asian studies and women's studies, this book should be the standard treatment of women's movements in Taiwan for years. Nothing else matches Chang's comprehensiveness." --Barbara E. Reed, co-author of Culture and Customs of Taiwan

"With clear prose and insightful analysis, Doris T. Chang uncovers the varied historical roots of Taiwanese feminisms: Japanese-era social movements, Cold War KMT mobilization of women, and the long struggle for democracy. She also explains the contemporary diversity of the Taiwanese women's movements and the various social issues they must address. As a rare history of feminisms in a non-western context, this book is a must-read for both Taiwan studies and women's studies." --Scott Simon, author of Sweet and Sour: Life Worlds of Taipei Women Entrepreneurs

"A thoughtful and carefully researched intellectual history, and more. Chang gives us a strong narrative of the Taiwanese feminist movement and a vivid and knowing account of the path of women's activism on the ground in the day-to-day world as well as in the worlds of the mind and the written word in the present day Republic of China/Taiwan." --Murray A. Rubinstein, editor of Taiwan, A New History
