Abstract

“The Country of Women: Third World Feminisms in the Legends of Taiwanese Indigenous Peoples,” discusses descriptions about women and sexual attitudes in Taiwanese indigenous legends, as well as compares depictions of the country of women in Taiwanese, Chinese, and English literature. Evidently, literary works written by authors in a patriarchal society developed through a “process of civilization” have mostly highlighted the unequal treatment between the two sexes, whereas indigenous peoples treat the individual characteristics of men and women straightforwardly and unbiasedly. This paper discusses the differences of Taiwanese legends from other literary works from the perspectives of Third World Feminisms.

Keywords:
Third World Feminisms, Taiwanese literature, English literature, Chinese literature, Taiwanese indigenous peoples, patriarchal society, maternal society.
