Edited by Eva Hung
xii + 131 pages
A ground-breaking collection featuring a sparkling array of stories from seven of Hong Kong and Taiwan's leading women writers. Writing from two Chinese experiences, the authors provide a glimpse of changing attitudes and social structures in dealing with topics such as abortion, runaway wives, family and female sexuality.
