Paper long abstract:

In the process of China's rural community and land stock cooperation reform, the key is to identify villagers' "membership". While in practice, rural women's legal rights have often been expropriated, which not only harmed women's identify, physical and mental health, but also formed a strong obstacle for the country's New Urbanization Reform. With a feminist perspective, in the public administration domain, this paper constructs an interpretative framework of "gendered membership", including community boundary clarification, household registration system transformation and population migration, land policy evolvement and resource attribute, village self-governance and patriarchy traditional customs.
