Prof. Wang Zheng presents the hidden history of the socialist state feminists who maneuvered behind the scenes in the Chinese Communist Party to promote women’s liberation. Her research focuses on the tenacious struggles of these CCP women who joined the revolution in the early 1920s and 1930s and became part of the state power holders after the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949. Investigating their visions, strategies, triumphs and failures, the lecture engenders the high politics of the CCP and raises fundamental questions about male dominance in movements that aim to pursue social justice.
