5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant work of scholarship, 26 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Modern Women in China and Japan: Gender, Feminism and Global Modernity Between the Wars (Library of China Studies Vol 1) (Hardcover)
While the history of feminism in the early 20th century has received increasingly more scholarly attention over the last few decades, its manifestation in non-Western cultures has hitherto been given little consideration.
Modern Women in China and Japan: Gender, Feminism and Global Modernity Between the Wars offers a very welcome new perspective into the role of women in Asia during the era of first-wave feminism. The choice of the six women - whose lives and works are the book's focus - is particularly inspired: the inclusion of both Asian women influenced by European and American culture (Sophia Chen Zen, Uno Chiyo) and Western women living in East Asia (Pearl Buck, Stella Benson, Caroline Bache McMahon, Lilian May Miller) allows for the discussion of culturally specific concepts of gender, yet at the same time highlights the crucial part intercultural exchange played in the global rise of the 'modern woman'.

Incisive and insightful, Modern Women in China and Japan is a rewarding book for those interested in history, literature and gender alike.
