The rate of change in China over the last 100 years or so has been amazing. It was a turbulent period for China with a democratic revolution at the beginning of the 20th century followed by the rise of Communism, World War II, with its hideous history in China, the triumph of Communism, various Communist attempts to revolutionize Chinese society and, finally, a switch from Communism to Chinese capitalism. From the point of view of women, it has been a mixed picture. Discuss in your essay what has changed and why and which transformations appear to benefit women and which do not. Consider how much had altered before World War II and if change would have occurred even without the explosive influence of Communism. A head's up--although the one-child family was and is of enormous importance, it's not the only event of the last century to impact the lives of women. Write a MAJOR ASSIGNMENT of 4-6 pages. in the text box.
