Abstract
What is striking in the candlelight demonstration in 2008 is that girls played a leading role in the inception period and thereafter the overwhelming turnout of diverse groups of women gave it a great impetus throughout. Considering that women accounted for about 70 percent of the participants, it is very important to understand their positionality clearly. This paper aims to examine the political identity of the women participants and analyze the characteristics of various groups of women who led the candlelight demonstration from the perspectives of global consumption culture and global food safety and the involvement of Internet communities. Then it compares their "action" of participation in the demonstration with the labor struggle mounted by married female nonregular workers of E-Land. The rapidly changing public sphere or publicity, together with the progress of neoliberalist globalization, provides legitimacy to this investigation and presents prospects on the future world in which "ordinary women" become the political agents to lead life politics.
