The Chinese Women’s New Life Movement was founded in 1934 by the government of Chiang Kaishek, incorporating Confucian philosophy and anticommunism. China fought alongside the United States against Japan during World War II, and many Chinese refugees and representatives of the Nationalist government settled in New York, contributing to relief and fundraising efforts for American and Chinese troops. The Chinese Women’s New Life Movement promoted war relief activities in New York, in conjunction with the American Women’s Voluntary Services, the country’s largest American women’s service organization.
