Summary/Abstract: Considerable research attention has focused on the relationship between globalization and gender equality, gender differences in labor supply and demand, the social relations of gender, the opportunities for gender-class equality, and the structuring of gender-class differences in paid and unpaid work. Applying new conceptual and methodological approaches, this study advances to the next level research on the new and emerging gender-based developments in Chinese law, the impact of the one-child policy on gender equality in education, the relationship between gender and space, and the translation of women’s human rights rhetoric into concrete action. The main objective of this paper is to explore and describe the pervasiveness of gender-based violence, the underlying reasons for gender differences in cognition in the Chinese context, and the narrowing of the gender gap in educational attainment.
