Locating Chinese Women

Alice Lim Kee, born 1900 in Rutherglen in rural Victoria, Australia, emigrated to China as a young adult and became a film actress, journalist, and pioneer broadcaster in Shanghai between the wars. She wrote on Chinese women – as Wu Ai-lien (伍愛蓮‎) – principally for the English-language Shanghai North-China Daily News. During the Sino-Japanese War, she returned to Australia as Mrs Fabian Chow, a goodwill ambassador to promote China's struggle against Japan. Feminist, modernist, social reformer, and Christian, she spent more than two years on a speaking tour of Australia. Her powerful, emotional, and personable style of speaking may well have had a pivotal role in changing White Australians' attitudes to China as a nation and the Chinese as a people.
