From:湖南省政府网 | Date Add in:2019-07-25 10:30:00 [A  A]


   Mao Zejian, a native of Shaoshan Chong, Xiangtan county, joined the Chinese revolution cause under her cousin, Chairman Mao Zedong's influence. Mao Zejian was born in October, 1905. In 1921, she joined Chinese Socialist Youth League, and later in 1923, she became a member of Chinese Communist Party. Soon after that, she went from Changsha to Hengyang and pursued her study there in the Hunan provincial No.3 Normal School, during which she changed her name into Mao Xiangda and was elected as the school Party branch secretary and the leader of girls department of the students' union of south Hunan. In the winter of 1925, she got married with Chenfen, a Party member from Leiyang. After the Northern Expedition Army entered Hunan, Mao Zejian began taking on agriculture movement work in rural areas, and held the post as a Party committee member of Hengyang county for women's movement. After the abortion of the Great Revolution, Mao mainly devoted herself to the armed struggle which made her a famous female guerrilla leader in her times. In early May of 1928, she was captured at Xia Tangpu in Leiyang. She got rescued on May 26th, but was captured again soon. The enemy thought she was Chairman Mao's cousin and had taken on important Party's work in Hengyang. So, they took her from Leiyang to Hengyang, and then to Mountain Heng, keeping her in custody for over one year in total. They tried to make her give in and confess and by applying extreme torture. But her unremitting will and strong sense of righteousness supported her and she never let out any information about her work. However, unfortunately, she still got killed by the Party's enemy at the execution ground near Mawang Temple of Mountain Heng on August 20th, 1929, at the age of 24.
