About this product
- DescriptionStarting with the crippling custom of footbinding, this work presents a study of Chinese American women during the first half of the twentieth century. Using this symbol of subjugation to examine social change in the lives of these women, it shows the stages of 'unbinding' that occurred between the turn of the century and the end of World War II.
