The paper examines Maxine Hong Kingston's memory novel, "The Woman Warrior." The paper discusses gender and cultural issues and focuses on the oppression and status of women in China and the U.S. The paper also explores how to blend the Chinese-American heritage with feminism.

From the Paper:

"Whether born in pre-World War II, China or post-World War II America, whether conventional or rebellious, the female characters in Maxine Hong Kingston's "The Woman Warrior" are united by various forms of the oppression of women. In China gender discrimination was much more severe than in the United States. The stories of the Chinese women in Kingston's memory novel reveal not only their inferior status in Chinese society, but also their passivity that in a sense makes them enablers of their role."
