La femme chinoise dans la transition économique : un bilan mitigé


  • Isabelle Attané


[eng] Isabelle Attané. — Chinese women in a period of economic change : A mixed assessment Since the start of economic reforms, major upheavals are occurring in Chinese society. The status of women, in particular, has undergone significant albeit ambivalent changes. Whereas on one hand the decline in fertility tends to favour women with respect to family life, the economic and social liberalization that accompanies the reforms does not necessarily contribute towards improving their status. This study outlines recent changes affecting women, both in terms of the means at their disposal for attaining greater autonomy and the manner in which their status is currently evolving.
