Dr. Wang Zheng of the University of Michigan

Dr. Wang Zheng is a professor of Women's Studies and History, research scientist, and executive committee member of The Institute for Research on Women & Gender at the University of Michigan. Earning her Ph.D. in Modern Chinese History from the University of California, Davis, Dr. Zheng's work focuses on feminism in China, particularly its historical development and contemporary activism, as well as changing gender discourse in China's socioeconomic, political, and cultural transformations of the past century.

Dr. Zheng will be visiting campus to present her research titled "A Social Feminist Revolution in the People's Republic of China," which will focus on the hidden history of socialist state feminists who worked behind the scenes in the Chinese Communist Party to promote women's liberation.
