Sumiao Li Presents "Supergirl" and "City Jade Man"

Sumiao's presentation investigates the emergence of new fashion-driven gender models in contemporary China: the "supergirl" and the "city jade" man. Sharing the gender-neutral aesthetics fashionable in recent decades, these two models present much about contemporary Chinese culture and society. Exploring why and how these figures have arisen out of the post-Mao de-politicization of gender issues, Li argues for the centrality of global fashion in shaping personal and group identities and discusses challenges the new formations pose for transnational feminist practice.
