Qiu Jin, A feminist poet and revolutionary who became a martyr known as China’s ‘Joan of Arc'

秋瑾是一名女诗人兼革命家,后来英勇就义成为了中国人心目中的“圣女贞德”。

With her passion for wine, swords and bomb making, Qiu Jin was unlike most women born in late 19th-century China. As a girl, she wrote poetry and studied Chinese martial heroines like Hua Mulan (yes, that Mulan) fantasizing about one day seeing her own name in the history books.

不像其他出生于中国19世纪末的大多数女性,秋瑾热爱饮酒,耍剑,制造炸弹。还是个女孩的时候,她就写诗、研究中国武术女侠如花木兰(对,就是那个木兰),想象着有一天自己能垂名青史。

But her ambitions ran up against China’s deeply rooted patriarchal society, which held that a woman’s place remained in the home. Undeterred, Qiu rose to become an early and fierce advocate for the liberation of Chinese women, defying prevailing Confucian gender and class norms by unbinding her feet, cross-dressing and leaving her young family to pursue an education abroad.

但是她的抱负与当时中国根深蒂固的父权社会格格不入,那时人们认为一个女人的位置是属于在家庭里的。但这并没有阻挡秋瑾,她转身成为了解放中国妇女的早期坚定的拥护者,解放双脚(没有裹脚),换成男装,年少时就离开家里到国外追求教育,公然反抗当时盛行的儒家性别和阶级规范,

Her legacy as one of China’s pioneering feminists and revolutionaries was cemented on July 15, 1907, when she was beheaded at 31 by imperial army forces who charged her with conspiring to overthrow the Manchu-led Qing government. It was her final act of resistance, and it would later earn her a place in the pantheon of China’s revolutionary martyrs.

作为中国女权先驱和革命者之一,她给人类的遗产终止于1907年7月15日,彼时秋瑾被冠上“密谋推翻满足统治的清政府”这一罪名被皇家军队斩首,时年31岁。这是她最后一次的反抗行为,而这也为她后来在中国革命烈士的圣殿中赢得了一席之位。

To this day, she is often referred to as “China’s Joan of Arc.”

直到今天,人们经常把她称之为“中国的圣女贞德。”

“Qiu Jin lived at a time when women in China were not permitted to venture out of their homes, let alone participate in public affairs,” said Zhang Lifan, a writer and historian in Beijing. “So Qiu Jin not only participated in politics, her actions alone were a rebellion.”

“秋瑾生活在这么一个时代-这时候的中国妇女是不被允许离开家去外面冒险,更不用说参与到公众事务,”张力凡,一名北京作家和历史学家如此说道。“所以秋瑾不单单是参与到政治上,她的行为本身就是一种反抗。”
