Chapter five reads closely short fiction from the era through the prism of gender identity, and suggests that gender politics in colonial Taiwan seem similar to those of pre-independence India. It also notes naturalization of colonial management systems in contemporary Taiwanese scholarship on female authors. Texts read closely in this chapter include the work of Zhang Bihua, Ye Tao, Huang Baotao, and Yang Qianhe.

Keywords:   Zhang Bihua, Ye Tao, Huang Baotao, Yang Qianhe, colonialism, gender, identity-politics
