Abstract

Lau Kin Chi traces the development of the first all-women mutual-support credit union in China. Its experiences demonstrate that the places women inhabit are produced in a conflictual economy of forces and tensions, implicated in processes of globalization. The cross-border partnership between the rural women and CSD, a Hong Kong voluntary group, can be pedagogical, treading counter-histories for the making of a new community.
