Academic Article: Chinese American Women, Language, and Moving Subjectivity by Victoria Chen
Women and Language, Spring, 1995, Vol.18(1), p.3(5)
"Recent writings on Chinese American women depict the dilemma that the subjects face as they recognize their bicultural identity in a society that insists on homogeneity. Women novelists of Chinese descent are very much aware of the linguistic and cultural discrepancy that exists between the language of their parents and the language that they learned in school and use in everyday life. This awareness is apparent in the way they explore interpersonal relations in their novels."
