Exploring women's history in China, Hong Kong and Macau

This rich history tells the story of more than 40 Chinese and Western women who were active participants in the turbulent times of China, Hong Kong and Macau over the past two centuries. As writers, travellers and campaigners for women's and human rights, the women of Chinese Footprints lived lives of great courage, imagination and purpose.

Acclaimed historian and activist Susanna Hoe steps beyond the bounds of traditional historical writing to bring us the enthralling story of her search for her characters, tracing them through letters, diaries and journals, travelling in their footsteps and comparing notes with fellow researchers. Chinese Footprints is as much about the author's engaging task of historical re-creation as it is about the lives, loves and struggles of women such as 1930s civil rights campaigners Shi Liang, Agnes Smedley and Stella Benson, autobiographical writer Xiao Hong, Olympic sportswoman, traveller and writer Ella Maillart, icon of revolutionary China Soong Ching Ling, philanthropist Clara Ho Tung and Clara Elliot, who lived in Macau at the time of Hong Kong's cession to Britain.
