Chapter Summary

To advocate for ?women?s revolution?, He Zhen wrote a series of articles for Tianyi bao, the most important being ?Nüzi xuanbu shu? 女 子宣布書, ?Nüzi fuchou lun? 女子復仇論, and ?Nüzi jiefang wenti? 女子解放問題. Clearly there was a concerted effort to give priority to topics concerning women. This highly visible focus on gender is what distinguishes Tianyi bao from its counterparts in Western and Japanese anarchist official publications. This chapter addresses the tension between He Zhen?s anarchism and her feminism. Following closely her contributions to Tianyi bao, the chapter focuses specifically on two key issues: her uses of the rhetoric of violence and the anarchist concept of absolute equality among all people.

Keywords: feminism; He Zhen; Tianyi bao; women?s revolution
