Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This doctoral dissertation is concerned with the
discrepancy between the traditional view of the inferior status of Chinese women as
contrasted with the quite different status as revealed in the study of a Hokkien village in
northern Taiwan. Most of the monograph is a rich ethnography of this village, presenting
data on the status of women throughout the description. The remainder of the monograph
deals with the presentation of women's status in the literature and in the ideal view of
the Chinese Great tradition.
