Free One-Day Workshop for Educators at USC - Holding Up Half the Sky (and often a whole lot more): Women in Modern China

April 9, 2016
Join us on April 9 for a Saturday workshop focusing on women in modern China. Too often the experience of women is neglected in discussions of China’s tumultuous 20th and 21st centuries, so we have invited three authors of recent books on women in China to talk with us. Among the topics we’ll discuss is how women sought to shape their own destinies and how Chinese states sought to change their status and, sometimes, to mobilize them for particular causes.
