Women and Child Care in China: A Firsthand Report.
Sidel, Ruth
This paperback presents an illustrated, first hand report of the changes in attitudes towards women and child care in China since the revolution of 1949. Chinese women are encouraged to take an active part in the country's activities. Extensive governmental programs provide women with birth-control information, prenatal assistance, maternity leaves, and child care facilities. Major emphasis is given to descriptions of nurseries, nursery schools, and kindergartens. Chinese childrearing practices are compared to those of Israel and the Soviet Union and some aspects of the Chinese experience that may be of value to the united states are discussed. A sample of a Chinese kindergarten reader is included. (SET)
