Event Details

With her roots in rural Hunan, ties to the global women’s suffrage movement, and experiences leading a nationwide women’s rights movement, Tang Qunying (1871-1937) as a political figure embodied both the strengths and contradictions of Chinese republicanism. The arc of her career exposes the multivalent nature of political leadership, citizenship and civil society in modern China.
