When creating The Women's Kit, it was difficult to find academic work on women that was already written. According to Pamela Harris, those who worked on the kit "tended to use what [they] could get their hands on." This was the case for the China Envelope. Unfortunately, most of the materials within the China Envelope turned out to be propaganda. At the time The Women's Kit was created, these articles on China suggested that the women living there were becoming more liberated. Unfortunately, most of the materials within the China Envelope turned out to be propaganda disseminated by the communist Chinese government.
