On this edition of Independent Sources hosted by Zyphus Lebrun, we speak to Professor Ya-Chen Chen prior to the release of her new book, New Modern Chinese Women and Gender Politics. Sarah Pizon speaks to the professor about how both gay and straight Chinese women are having somewhat of a Renaissance. We speak to Reva Judas about her effort to council families that have lost babies. Then we see how Pope Francis’ support of a controversial Catholic philosophy, Liberation Theology, is sending shockwaves through the community.
