'Margery Wolf is an anthropologist well practiced in observing, documenting,and analyzing the Chinese family, community, and society from the female perspective ... This book both sensitively records and astutely analyzes the details of women's activities, their relationships, attitudes, and aspirations, as presented and interpreted by women in China themselves.'
