This article introduces Eastern European feminisms and discusses the potential of Eastern European feminisms in becoming a new source of inspiration for feminist theorizing and organizing in China. It begins with a brief account of the post-socialist transition in Eastern Europe, particularly the change of gender relations and gender discourses. Then it views briefly how Eastern Europe has encountered Western feminism and what influences the latter has had in the development of feminism in the region; the article then sketches the tenet of Eastern European feminisms in four aspects to illustrate what Eastern European feminisms stand for and how they constitute a formidable challenge to the hegemony of Western feminism; Finally, the article discusses to what extent Eastern European feminisms can become more relevant to the development of Chinese feminism than it is now.
