Summary note:
"This book examines a three-way interaction among market, state, and family in China's recent market reform. Using interview data collected from women of three different cohorts in urban China, this study challenges China's free-market approach and demonstrates its negative impacts on women's work and family experiences. The book also explores urban women's non-market definitions of marital equality, and highlights theoretical and policy implications concerning market efficiency, marital equality, and the state's role in protecting public good."-- Provided by publisher.
