The role of feminism in contemporary China is controversial, due to both the nature of this ideology itself and its application in China. This article argues that while women movement based on liberalism has contributed to gender equality and liberation of women in China since the modern times, feminist movement in contemporary China tends to sacrifice womens rights and interests for the leftist fantasies. The article also points that as attempts had been made by the so-called socialist revolution in general and the Proletarian Cultural Revolution in particular to eliminate the distinction between men and women, the same line of thinking advocated by contemporary feminists alienates Chinese women who chose to take back their distinctive disposition destroyed by the revolutions.
