Women and gender studies increasingly contribute to a more differentiated knowledge of China. This issue presents research on a variety of topics related to women and gender in modern and contemporary China including the question of women's citizenship in the Republican period, health issues of women soldiers on the Long March, the problem of and activities against domestic violence and the revision of the marriage law. By exploring how gender interacts with other categories and how processes of modernization and transformation are gendered the articles shed new light on the structures of Chinese society.
