         Abstract

 The Chinese state acts in concert with the patriarchal family to sustain its authoritari-
 an legitimacy, and both institutions are grounded in paternalistic cultural norms. The
 state also harnesses the quality of Chinese families through the law, which often
 saddles women  with more burdens and responsibilities than it does men. From the
 1950 Marriage Law to the 2015 Universal Two-Child Policy, the state has directly politi-
 cized the family through explicit mandates on marriage and reproductive control as
 well as repressive deployment of families as a tool for social stability and national se-
 curity. To unpack this state-family project, this article addresses how the patriarchal
 state constructs and manages a filial nationalist population in order to secure its au-
 thoritarian rule. Through the lens of emerging Chinese feminist and queer scholarship
 on families, this article also asks how the state-family project has affected people and
 families that are intersectionally marginalized by gender, sexuality, class, household
 registration [hukou P n ], and so on. Lastly, this article spotlights new developments
 in feminist and LGBTQ movements as they advocate for marginalized individuals and
 families.
