About This Book

Examining the employment lives of Chinese women living under different government systems at the beginning of the 21st century, the contributors to this volume present an overview of factors affecting the employment status of women. This study concerns the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore - nations that have common Chinese cultural experiences but very different economic systems and government structures. This book provides a theoretical introduction from both Chinese and Western perspectives, as well as summaries of the effect of government taxation, health and safety, reproduction, childcare, and education policies on women's employment in each nation-state.
