Young feminist activists in present-day China: A new feminist generation?

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


This article studies post-2000 Chinese feminist activism from a generational perspective. It operationalises three notions of generation – generation as an age cohort, generation as a historical cohort and ‘political generation’ – to shed light on the question of generation and generational change in post-socialist Chinese feminism. The study shows how the younger generation of women have come to the forefront of feminist protest in China and how the historical conditions they live in have shaped their feminist outlook. In parallel, it examines how a ‘political generation’ emerges when feminists of different ages are drawn together by a shared political awakening and collaborate across age.
