[quote=LOVEISVERB ,32269]OK, that is a tough question, baby:))Here is what I think about <feminism in China or feminist Chinese>: there were a group of people took great effort in bringing Feminism into China, a small group of people. They translated Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll’s House " in the very beginning of 20th century. In the drama, the heroine Nora ran away from home because her husband treated her like a doll... There were a few educated women who had chances to watch the drama got so excited with this new idea: O, wow, women can run away from home, from their husbands!! Some of them followed suit, they ran away from their husbands or from the arranged marriages, happy ones or not, they needed to tell others that they were "New Type of Women 新女性" they made the change of their life for change's sake. At last, smart people asked a tough question: what happened after Nora ran away? What happened after Chinese NoraS ran away? How could they surport themselves, they don't have any money? So, the Great Escape wasn't a success. But this Mr. Henrik Ibsen was remembered by Chinese ever since and treated like the one brought difference to the already disordered China. There was no result in the Feminist Movement, except women started to cut short their hair, went to the cinamas with boys, wearing things that saved lots of cloth, just like western woman, etc etcThe feminism in the West covered a whole lot of things and theories. But personally, I think feminism (including the so called Chinese Feminism) was started by MEN who had ulterior motives: free your mind, free your body, so ....... at least in China, women wouldn't cut off their arms or fingers because they were touched by men; They wouldn't hang themselves because they got sexual harassment, blah, blah, blah ... <it's ok men will not admit that, hoho!> so, women were considerably open and men were more considerably happy about that. hohoho~~~[/quote]
