3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Columbia Global Centers | Beijing

Columbia Global Centers | Beijing invite you to a BOOK LAUNCH to celebrate the publication of the first annotated edition of Natural Justice (Tianyi) and Equity (Heng bao), two of the most influential journals from the late Qing. Edited by He-Yin Zhen (alias, He Zhen), Natural Justice was the first Chinese feminist journal created by the Society for the Restoration of Women’s Rights in Tokyo in 1907. 

How did the first wave of socialist and communist ideas arrive in China? This feminist journal holds the key, being the venue for the first ever translation of The Communist Manifestoand many important discussions of social and political revolution. The newly annotated edition of Natural Justice and Equity (2016) is the fruit of many years’ collaboration between Professor Wan Shiguo and Professor Lydia H. Liu of Columbia University.
