|Jieyu Liu, "Gender, Sexuality and Power in Chinese Companies: Beauties at Work" 2017 | ISBN - 10: 1137505745 | 158 pages | PDF | 2 MB This book offers the first ethnographic account of the experiences of highly educated young professional women, hailed by the Chinese media as ‘white - collar beauties’. It exposes the organizational mechanisms – naturalization, objectification and commodification of women – that wield gendered and sexual control in post - Mao workplaces. Whilst men benefit from symbolic and bureaucratic power, women professionals skilfully enact indirect power in a game of domination and resistance. The sources of women’s subversion are grounded in their only - child upbringing which breaks the patrilineal base of familial patriarchy fostering an unprecedented ambition in personal development, gender as inherently relational and a role - oriented system, and inner - outer cultural boundaries as signifiers of moral agency. This raises a new feminist inquiry about the agents for social change. Through a nuanced analysis grounded in the socio - cultural locality, this book throws fresh light upon the ways in which gender, sexuality and power could be theorized beyond a Euro - American reality.
