Book description

The Routledge Handbook of East Asian Gender Studies presents up-to-date theoretical and conceptual developments in key areas of the field, taking a multi-disciplinary and comparative approach.

Featuring contributions by leading scholars of Gender Studies to provide a cutting-edge overview of the field, this handbook includes examples from China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong and covers the following themes:

    • theorising gender relations;
    • women?s and feminist movements;
    • work, care and migration;
    • family and intergenerational relationships;
    • cultural representation;
    • masculinity; and
    • state, militarism and gender.

This handbook is essential reading for scholars and students of Gender and Women?s Studies, as well as East Asian societies, social policy and culture.
