This book presents significant new findings on new domains of employment for women in China's burgeoning market economy of the 1990s and the twenty-first century. Experts in gender, politics, media studies, and anthropology discuss the impact of economic reform and globalization on Chinese women in family businesses, management, the professions, the prostitution industry and domestic service. Significant themes include changing marriage and consumer aspirations and the reinvention of domestic space. The volume offers fresh insights into changing definitions of 'women's work' in contemporary China and questions women's perceived 'disadvantage' in the market economy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'With contributions from both established and rising China scholars, this impressive collection places Chinese women in comparative perspective, links domestic disagreements over women's issues to international debates, and effectively relates women's present context to China's past.' - China Information

'Based on imaginative and insightful fieldwork investigations combined with sensitive and knowledgeable analyses, the book provides a nuanced exploration of women's lives, work and gender relations in contemporary China. It both builds on and extends the previous literature and debates on women in China and in cross-cultural women's and gender studies.' - The China Journal
