Abstract
We analyze the qualitative data collected through semi-structured interviews with 14 Chinese-Singaporean divorcees through the notion of “doing gender” (West and Zimmerman), and illustrate how various dimensions of the divorce experiences – including, but not limited to, the perceptions and experiences of court proceedings, coping strategies, and arrangements of childcare – vary along the gender line.
