The High-Drama, Low-Impact Feminism of ‘Hear Her’ Bai Meijiadai

OK, enough politics for the moment. Let's look at some feminism in China. 

Actually, the biggest push for feminism in China was Mao and the CCP. The CCP enforced equality in China in a culture that was not female-friendly. This was not always the case in the Chinese history, but at the time of the revolution it was prevalent.

Feminism in China has come a long way since then.

Feminism is political. Try Dianic Wicca.

Feminism is political.

Yes, but in a wider sense than just institutional. It is also cultural. To provoke institutional change, cultural chance generally needs to precede. It is a social and political phenomenon that also has economic implications (think markets).

Study the role of women in the few remaining hunter-gatherer societies, which is perhaps a product of non-market economics.
