Following her victory, she continued writing in the same vein, and it is largely due to her efforts that sentiment, family, and motherhood gradually became respectable topics again in China. In 1979 Ju Chih-chuan bucked the trend again, experimenting with a bold "male" style to attack the disastrous agricultural policies of the Great Leap Forward (1958--59). She was one of the first to dare to expose the folly of this failed policy.
Though Ju Chih-chuan has shown extraordinary courage throughout her writing career, her work's international reception is flawed by reliance on political context for true intelligibility. In translation it tends to appear marred by Communist jargon and becomes deceptively mild.
