Harriet Zurndorfer. “Gender Issues in Traditional China” Oxford Bibliographies Online. Oxford 2014.

From the introduction: “The study of pre-20th century gender issues in China began in the 1970s with Margery Wolf’s groundbreaking anthropological analysis of women and the family in rural Taiwan. Her Stanford University 1972 publication Women and the Family in Rural Taiwan (see Wolf 1972, cited under Marriage and Family) challenged the idea that Chinese women were always subordinated in the Confucian patriarchal family.”
