The All-China Women’s Federation is state-sponsored women’s organization which acts as the official representative of Chinese women’s movement at both national and international levels. Ever since its founding in 1949, the Federation has been fostering and emphasizing both their local engagement with the issues of "women from all walks of life" and their close ties with the international community of women. Acknowledging the limitations of currently available archival material, this talk will be an initial attempt to use the ACWF's journal Women of China to analyze the activities of the Federation at the intersection of the national and the international. That is, I will look at the available information publicized by the ACWF to simultaneously observe the positions of the Federation when it comes to the national politics of the Party and the politics of China’s positioning at the global stage on the one hand, and the Federation's own politics when it comes to its interest in and communication with internationally located women and their organizations on the other. The talk will start by briefly introducing the Women’s Federation, its pronounced agendas, and its status within the state apparatus and within the international women's movement. What It will then discuss the period between 1989 and 1995, the years in which the suppression of the pro-democracy students' protests resulted in a significant tarnishing of China's international "face", in the reduction of assistance programs directed to China by the international bodies, and in shrinking diplomatic communication between foreign and China's governments in the following decade; and yet, the years which saw the ACWF preparing and hosting the UN World Conference on Women in Beijing. The talk will then evolve in the reverse temporal direction from the 1990s back to the 1950s and attempt to trace the formation of women's and feminist national and international links which mediated the possibilities of the organization of the UN Women's Conference despite the unfolded national and international political contexts of the early 1990s. The talk will end up with raising methodological and theoretical questions pertinent for both participation in and further investigation of women's organizing when the wider context of national and transnational communication and collaboration assumes and/or implies the women's and feminists' links with local increasingly repressive regimes.
