Abstract
Starting in 1980, this study explores the development of gender equality in China through an intersectionality theory and perspective. In this thesis, three definitions of gender equality are used to examine China’s gender equality development. The intersectional theory is applied as a way of highlighting the complexities of society and academics, for example the issue of categorization. This study also relies heavily on the data set ”Quality of government” and its time-series data. The progress is demonstrated through charts and diagrams created by the author. This study concludes, through its analysis, that intersectionality may highlight reasons of (lack of) development that otherwise would be ignored.
