This deeply researched book provides an original history of Chinese women during the pivotal Song and Yuan dynasties (960-1368). Bret Hinsch explores the most important aspects of female life in this era―political power, family, work, inheritance, religious roles, and emotions―and considers why the status of women declined during this period.
