The original essays translated in this sourcebook reflect a time of great political and social ferment in early twentieth century China, the highlight of which was the May Fourth Movement of 1919, a time when women especially were subject to the vicissitudes of war, modernization, and rapid social change.The authors, a distinguished group of leader-activists of the May Fourth Movement, women and men, discuss and debate across a broad range of theoretical and practical issues revolving around "the woman question". They bring a compelling perspective to the lives of Chinese women in the context of the great events that shaped twentieth-century China.
