Lois Hao is a second year doctoral student studying modern Chinese history with a focus on culture and gender. She is interested in Chinese women’s experience with the cultural and social transformation of their time. For her first-year paper, she looked at the celibatarianism among female college students and graduates in China in the 1920s and 1930s, exploring the opportunities and challenges of the changing social expectations on them.
