'Competing and learning': women and the state in contemporary rural mainland China



'Competing and learning': women and the state in contemporary rural mainland China



Issues and Studies 30(3): 51-66



The 'competing and learning' campaign aimed at rural women was launched in March 1989 by the All-China Women's Federation in response to pressures arising from demographic changes in the Chinese countryside, including the changing character of the rural population and growing concern since 1986 about levels of food production. Rural women were to be encouraged to learn to read and write, and to learn skills and technology for farming and sideline occupations.
