Abstract

This paper examines the history and development of women entering legal education in China. Based on a survey, interviews, and archival research, this paper attempts to analyze Chinese women’s current status in legal education and reaches the conclusion that although women have made significant gains in legal education, they are still facing gender discrimination and bias in the legal sector. The paper also looks into the reasons why women have in the past belonged to “the other” in the legal area, and whether there is any conflict between “legal characteristics” and “feminine characteristics.” It attempts to break the constraint caused by dualism and gender essentialism.
