CHINESE STAMP

    Have you read China for Women? Or Women's Studies,Women's Lives? Well, that's where I had come across the writing of Li Xiaojang. Her paper entitled The Progress of Mankind and Liberation of Womanhood is considered the first treatise on women published in China since 1949. Controversial and thought provoking, this essay and her other writings were instrumental in bringing many Chinese women together to form a Women's Studies and Research group.

    Between the first women's symposium held at Zhengzou University in 1985 and the Fourth World Conference on Women in 1995, China has seen the birth and growth of many women's groups and most of them bring out newsletters and magazines. In a country where almost all publishing is state owned bringing out occasional publications is an achievement by itself.

    The two women's groups with internet facilities are All China Women's Federation ( acwf@igc.apc.org) and Forum Against Oppression of Women (inforum@inbb.gn.apc.org)
