Woman Town?

Salon.com has an interesting blurb on “Woman Town,” an experimental town inside the Shuangqiao district in the Chongqing municipality of China dedicated to being a place where women make the decisions. It’s an interesting concept, though I’m not entirely sure what the point of it is. Is it to respond to what’s seen as a predominantly patriarchal culture? Is it meant more as an amusement for tourists? Time will tell, but it’ll be fascinating to see whether or not any different local legal approaches develop as a result of an institutionalized “female dominated” structure. Keep your eyes peeled, Carol Gilligan!

    It would be interesting to see if there are any systematic policy differences in countries that have consistently higher levels of women’s representation.
