History of Women’s Literature in China (中国妇女文学史) was written by Xie Wuliang (谢无量, 1884-1964) and published in Shanghai in October 1916. Containing approximately 170,000 Chinese characters over the course of 40 chapters in six sections, it was the first history of women’s literature in China. Ending in the Ming dynasty, the book covers three periods - ancient, medieval (Han, Wei, Jin, Northern and Southern, and Tang dynasties) and modern (Song, Liao, Yuan, and Ming dynasties) - in the history of Chinese literature.

Written in Classical Chinese, Xie employs a personal style as he leads the reader through the history of Chinese literature written by women, examining the lives of individual authors, exploring representative works individually and making cursory comments on their style. Though Xie included most works by women throughout Chinese history prior to the Qing dynasty, his focus is primarily on the more refined works of literature.
