Editorial Reviews

A true story about a woman laborer from Hunan Province
in the south of China, who comes to Shanghai
to find the man she claims is the father of
her child.

It addresses a number of economic and social
changes in contemporary China. An unwed
mother goes to court to defend her baby girl,
Mao Mao. She ignores the centuries-old social
stigma as she gains public support for her cause.

That a rural Chinese woman should file such a
case in court would have been unthinkable in
Pre-Revolutionary China. Indeed, the status of
unwed mothers in those times was equally
unthinkable. So strong was the value associated
with premarital chastity in traditional times,and
so strong the shame of premarital pregnancy,
that a woman in such a condition would have
had little recourse but suicide. That she wins
her case in court, within a short period of two
months, and without the help of lawyers, is
all the more noteworthy.
