Rate this:
After illustrating how a combination of laws, customs, and Confucian philosophy had reduced Chinese women to chattels, this program examines in detail the turning points from the late-19th through mid-20th centuries that paved the way for a complete reversal in Chinese women's status. Remarkable vintage film and fascinating interviews with women whose lives have spanned the 20th century provide evidence of and insights into the harmful practices of foot-binding, arranged marriages, and polygamy; the positive impact of the Dowager Empress, Sun Yat-sen, Mao Zedong, and China's first feminist, Qiu Jin; and the salutary effects of female education and Ibsen's A Doll's House.
