Abstract (Swedish)
Fotbindning praktiserades i Kina under nästan tusen år. Under Qingdynastins sista turbulenta årtionden öppnades landet upp mot omvärlden. Detta markerade inledningen på Kinas moderna historia, och en
ny era för de kinesiska kvinnorna och deras fötter. Denna uppsats undersöker antifotbindningsrörelsen som växte fram i slutet av 1800-talet, mot bakgrund av en ökad västerländsk närvaro och spirande
kinesisk reformrörelse. I undersökningen av fotbindningsmotståndarnas argument och metoder läggs särskilt fokus på dagstidningen Dagong Bao. Tidningen drev en ihärdig kampanj mot fotbindning och
använde sig av nyskapande metoder för att öka sin läsekrets.
Abstract
Footbinding was widely practiced in China for nearly a thousand years. The Middle Kingdom was opened to the outside world during the last decades of Qing rule. This time of turmoil marked the
beginning of modern Chinese history, as well as a new era for Chinese women and their feet. This thesis highlights the antifootbinding movement that emerged at the end of the 19th century and its
connection to the increasing Western presence and budding Chinese reform movement. While examining the arguments and methods of the antifootbinding campaign, special attention is given to the
newspaper Dagong Bao. This publication forcefully argued against the practice of footbinding and took innovative measures to reach a wider audience.
