The stories, based on interviews with revolutionary women, include descriptions of the massacre of feminists in the Canton commune, of the silkworkers of Canton whose solidarity earns them the “charge” of lesbianism, and of Mother Tsai, a 60-year-old peasant who leads village women in smashing an opium den. This book is a moving document of a people in the throes of revolution, with rare photographs taken by Smedley of the people she spoke with.
