Full description: 

This Handbook contains interdisciplinary contributions from leading academics to provide a cutting edge overview of scholarship on gender in Greater China, Japan and South Korea. Contributions cover a wide range of gender related issues in East Asia; including the formation of gender norms, women's suffrage and feminist movements, the impact of gender on work, health and sexuality and depictions of masculinity and femininity in culture and media. This survey is essential reading for scholars and students working on East Asia as well as in related interdisciplinary fields that focus on women and gender from comparative and transnational perspectives.
