To stand by the women of the Orient : Australian women and China in the twentieth century
conference contributionposted on 2002-01-01, 00:00 authored by Sarah Paddle
This paper will examine the history of Australian women living and working in China in the twentieth century. To do this I will compare the Australian experience with research on American, British and New Zealander women. The paper includes a study of two categories of Australian women in China: the expert observers, and the secular reformers. Using current theorising of post-colonialism, I will identify the specific contribution and dimensions of Australian women's experience in China.
