Asia's New Mothers: Crafting Gender Roles and Childcare Networks in East and Southeast Asian Societies
Emiko Ochiai, Barbara Molony
Global Oriental, 2008 - History - 207 pages
Asia's New Mothers, through a focus on childcare, offers a comparative regional analysis unique in English-language sources of changing gender roles in East and Southeast Asia. Taking into consideration the historical and cultural differences and similarities among the societies in the region, the authors employ indepth researches of people's everyday experiences. The research was conducted between 2001 and 2003 in six societies in East and Southeast Asia - Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand and Singapore. While each makes its own unique contributions, most of the essays are informed by two theoretical focal points: modernization and gender and globalization and gender.
