Chapter Summary

This chapter intends to understand why the mother Nü Xuebao was eclipsed by the daughter Nü Xuebao amid the contingency of historical, sociopolitical, and cultural circumstances and how the process entailed complicated interactions and intersections of gender, racial, and nationalistic issues. It shows rather objectively the multiple discourses that women formed in response to the rapid changes of the time. The analysis of the process, however, does challenge the longstanding binary between radical/revolutionary/progressive women on the one side and conservative/reactionary/regressive women on the other, when we see a mild mother talking in her own voice, while a radical daughter parrots every sentence of her father.
