This seminar will present a pessimistic picture of gender inequities in China today, reflected in rampant levels of discrimination against women in the labour force, the Chinese government’s tightening censorship of feminist ideas and activism, Xi Jinping’s campaign to ‘reinforce traditional family values’, declining participation of women in politics, and China’s deteriorating position in global rankings of gender equality.
