Abstract: Feminists of color have been questioning the homogeneity of feminism as
written about by middle-class Caucasion women and demanding a space for the
voices of minority female in order to create feminist discourses which are more
appropriate for women of different ethnicities, social classes, political positions and
historical backgrounds. This paper, therefore, is devoted to the discovery of
heterogeneity within Chinese American women’s writing to refute the indiscernibility
of their works and to request more visibility for them. Furthermore, in this paper, I
have selected Maxine Hong Kingston and Amy Tan, two renowned Chinese American
female writers for comparison and contrast, which then unveil their similarities but
more importantly, their differences as distinct authors. The heterogeneity of writers of
seemingly similar backgrounds suggests a need for close reading and understanding
of various subjects. Through the identification of the heterogeneity among Chinese
American women writers, this paper has offered a way to distinguish the subjectivity
of different individuals.
