Out to Work: Migration, Gender, and the Changing Lives of Rural Women in Contemporary China  #Arianne M. #Gaetano
http://hkupress.org/book/9789888208531.htm

Out to Work offers a rich and nuanced account of the changing lives of rural-urban female migrants in China at the turn of the twenty-first century. The book shows that migrating to the city for work advances the dagongmei’s social mobility and relative gender positions to a certain extent. However, the book also shows that each individual triumph is as yet not strong enough to completely challenge the deeply entrenched gender and rural-urban inequalities in a rapidly changing China. As China charges full steam ahead, attention also needs to be given to the unforeseen human and social consequences of economic development.

“What one sees and what one hears live are such a perfect fit.”
—Yazhou Zhoukan

In The Goddess, Ruan Lingyu is a self-sacrificing but lowly mother who is forced to become an illicit prostitute in order to provide for her young son.  Through one unfortunate accident, her destiny falls into the hands of a gangster and gambling addict.  She struggles against the odds for survival to give her son an education, but due to her lowly position, both mother and son become social outcasts.  When she prepares to flee with her son to lead a new life elsewhere, she finds her hard-earned money stolen by the gangster, and she kills him in a rage.

#阮玲玉 在默片《神女》飾演一位無私卻低微的母親,為撫養兒子成人,不惜淪為暗娼;但一次意外令她從此被一名嗜賭如命的流氓掌控命運。她在惡運中掙扎求存,希望愛子能夠接受教育;卻因其身分,令母子飽受排斥。正當她準備與兒子逃到別處重新生活之際,發現流氓偷去她辛苦賺來的積蓄,在極度憤怒下,錯手將他殺死。

Extension Reading: Ruan Ling-Yu: The Goddess of Shanghai (with DVD of The Goddess 神女) http://hkupress.org/book/9789622093959.htm

蘋果動新聞 HK Apple Daily originally shared:
【本報訊】赤柱集中營的歷史,並沒隨營友相繼逝世而褪色。聖保羅書院前副校長Geof­frey Emerson於70年代曾經訪問23名營友,把他們的經歷寫成 Hong Kong Internment, 1942–1945: Life in the Japanese Civilian Camp at Stanley  http://hkupress.org/book/9789888028535.htm 一書,也因而與曾經入營的何東爵士女兒何文姿成為好友。他盼望人­們在9月3日的抗戰假期紀念和平降臨,而非在意識形態上加深對日本的仇恨。
