Images of Chinese Women in Traditional Chinese Literature

Dutiful? Shrew? Passive? Tiger Mother?

Course will examine the portrayal of women from the earliest Book of Poetry to China's most famous novel, Dream of the Red Chamber, to see the wide variety of female characters presented. We will look at the writings that set out in strict terms the proper behavior of women; and then at examples from literature of how women actually conducted themselves, often in ways that challenged these norms in lively and colorful ways. Chinese patriarchy was real, but Chinese women often found ways to subvert it.
