Rejection of foot-binding, 1883 (some short commentaries to the article by K'ang Yu-wei "Instruction on the refusal of foot-binding")

This article systematically presents the main contexts of the bulletin article by the Chinese thinker K'ang Yu-wei (1858–1927), known as the leader of the reform movement in China at the turn of the 19th-20th centuries. The analysis of the women's issue is important for understanding the entire philosophical concept of the thinker; this question appears, it seems, with convincing factual concreteness, in the "Instruction on the refusal of foot-binding." Since the work of Kang Youwei has not yet been fully translated into Russian, here is a full translation made by the author of the article. The cultural-historical commentary clarifies the historical outline of the tradition of foot-binding in imperial China; this tradition, in fact, opposes Kang Yuwei. The article is also accompanied by photographs taken by the author of the article in the house-museum of Kang Youwei in Foshan, Guangdong Province.
