With the defeat of Japan in World War II, Taiwan was restored to the Chinese Nationalist government. From 1945 to the late 1960s, the highly repressive political climate that developed under Chinese Nationalist rule was not conducive to political dissent or to the reemergence of an autonomous women's movement. It was not until the early 1970s that the postwar autonomous women's movement emerged within the context of the authoritarian regime's greater tolerance for social and political dissent in Taiwanese society. During the era of democratization in the post-1987 period, Taiwan has witnessed the emergence of diverse strains of feminist discourses and various non-government women's organizations.
