This thesis examines the various processes of gendered precarity in China’s ride-hailing platforms and contributes to the empirical discussion of gender and precarious work relations in the sociology of the gig economy. Situated in China’s ride-hailing platform, Didi Chuxing, it is the first feminist chatnographic research to study female ride-hailing drivers in China and explore female platform workers’ lived experiences in China’s gig economy. Importantly, it brings gendered precarity back to the discussion of social reproduction processes and the gig labour process, and looks at how social reproduction processes and communication technologies, engender the dynamics of control and resistance in the gig labour process and shape female workers’ intersectional vulnerability and resistance.
