0 Reviews

 This book uses a socio-historical approach with feminist insight to examine the work of Chinese women in colonial Malaya, specifically those who worked as prostitutes, mui tsai, domestic servants, tin and rubber workers, hawkers and construction workers. The study questions the view that all women in traditional society were subordinated.
