Summary
"Wang Ping interprets the mystery of footbinding as part of a womanly heritage - "a roaring ocean current of female language and culture." She claims that footbinding should not be viewed merely as a function of men's oppression of women, but rather as a phenomenon of male and female desire deeply rooted in traditional Chinese culture."--Jacket
