Chapter Summary

This chapter examines women's issues in Taiwanese. During the last few years of the 1980s, Taiwan's economy was boosted by growth in its computer and other high-tech industries, and steady expansion continued. According to Liu Kezhi, the percentage of Taiwanese women in the labor force was very high right from the start of industrialization. The chapter discusses Taiwanese patriarchy in detail, and the many forms of Taiwanese women's employment. The pattern of women's employment in Taiwan is quite interesting, according to level of education and according to place of work, in rural or urban areas. The chapter also talks about gender-based allocations of roles and power. The lack of great emphasis on the role of the mother in Taiwanese patriarchy helps make it possible for high percentages of women to work.
