New Yorker staff writer, Jiayang Fan, has recently written several articles that engage with the evolving nature of gender dynamics, Confucian patriarchy, and feminism in contemporary China. The rapid speed of the country’s economic growth, coupled with its increased exposure to the outside world in the last three decades, has created unique and improbable social trends.
Ms. Fan will be leading a discussion about some of these trends and what they might mean for current and future generations of Chinese society.
We invite Jiayang Fan, Staff Writer at The New Yorker to discuss.
Jiayang Fan is a staff writer at The New Yorker magazine, where she writes about China and Chinese-American politics and culture.
