Chapter Chapter 1 in Gender, Sexuality and Power in Chinese Companies, 2017, pp 1-10 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract Through rich ethnographic illustrations of the work and life of white-collar beauties in China in the new millennium, this book aims to make an essential and timely contribution to our understanding of highly educated women in the East Asian labour market. By grounding analysis in local socio-cultural meanings and mechanisms of the gender-sex system, this book aims to shed fresh light on the ways in which gender and sexuality are integral to the processes of compliance and resistance in the structural masculine domination at work beyond a Euro-American parameter. In doing so, the book promotes positioning feminist theory production in local research.
