IMPACT OF MARKET CAPITALISM

ON

MODERN CHINESE WOMEN

The system of free-market capitalism has reversed many of the rights and freedoms that Chinese women fought for during the Era of Mao. While economists have praised the financial gains attributed to capitalist expansion in China, the impact on the lives of Chinese women has been utterly ignored. While researching the data for this website, I was disappointed with the lack of current resources available. I hope this website will provide you with a clear examination of the current situation of women in China and also spark your interest in this dynamic subject.

Enjoy!

The impact of capitalism on the economic and social lives of Chinese women has been tremendous. On this website, I will break down the impact in the following titles:

Chinese Women Under State Capitalism

Chinese Women Under Market Capitalism

Change In Marriage/Family Formations

Poverty and Prostitution

Books, Articles and Links to Further Information on Modern Chinese Women
