"Revisiting Gender Inequality provides access to some of the key voices in China's own vibrant community of women's and gender studies scholarship. It offers theory-inflected empirical critiques of the nature of Chinese development, demonstrating the emergence of various forms of gendered inequality within the 'China model,' and connecting these to aspects of neoliberalism, privatization, resistance, and agency. This is vital reading for all interested in global feminisms and Chinese socio-economic development." - Sharon R. Wesoky, Professor of Political Science, Allegheny College, USA "Gender inequality in contemporary China has been made visible in this remarkable collection of essays together with a powerful introduction in ways that go beyond standard conceptions of knowledge production. These writings demonstrate the extraordinary relevance of feminist anti-capitalist critique at the margins of Chinese society for a much wider international audience, both South and North, made possible through their excellent translation and contextualization in English." - Mary E. John, Senior Fellow, Centre for Women's Development Studies, India "Gender is one of the most important research topics in Chinese studies. Much of the English literature about gender in China is written by people in the West for people in the West. Qi Wang and her associates introduce some research works on gender by scholars in China to Western readers, filling a gap in the literature. Students of Chinese society will benefit enormously from this volume." -Xiaowei Zang, Professor and Dean of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, City University of Hong Kong
