The course concentrates on the gender relationships in East Asia. Asian women's search for personal freedom was a constant battle because traditional societies greatly suppressed their choices. The course examines Asian women's sufferings, their struggles against the existing social order, their successes and failures, and the ways in which Asian women's pursuit of their rights finally led to their widened participation in social and political affairs.
