Women and Confucian Cultures by Dorothy Ko, Jahyun Kim Haboush, Joan R. Piggott

This fascinating collection of writings examines the role and culture of women in the Confucian-regulated eras of China, Korea and Japan, and as such, presents a nonconventional view of Confucianism that is broader than the typically oppressive male tradition, and allows for the power and richness of the female experience within the social and cultural circumstances of Confucian era life.
