The Rise Of Feminism In China Essay | A Doll’s House By H.Ibsen

The single story that I have chose is about the equality between male and female. Being of Chinese origin, I have a solid background knowledge of China and Chinese culture. I have always heard about that how man should work outside and take the financial responsibility of a family and man should not complain at all and should just tolerate the stresses. However, woman should stay at home take care of everything, such as wash clothes, do dishes, make meals, etc. This is what I always hear about from elders in China. But what I have seen were completely different than what I heard. I see almost most of the women in China are working outside and most of them have the ability to take care of themselves. This is why the real world turns out to be different from what Chinese people are accustomed to believe in. At the same time, I would point out that now many Chinese people become aware that traditional views and beliefs become outdated and gender roles tend to change, although outside our community, many people still believe that the gender inequality is still strong and that Chinese women stay at home focusing on household and children, while Chinese men are virtually the only breadwinners for their families.

I would like to tell this story myself. This is why I would like to publish an article about modern lifestyle within Chinese community and gender roles to debunk myths about men-women relationships and their position in our community. Probably, in a long-run I would elaborate on this issue more to the extent that I could publish a book, which will uncover the profound gender relations’ transformation within Chinese community as traditional gender roles change under the impact of the rapidly changing socioeconomic environment as many women shift to outside work, instead of focusing on their household and family entirely, as they used to do in the past. I would like to reach the broad audience, which includes not only Chinese but also representatives of other ethnic groups.

To circulate this story, I would refer to print media as well as online resources, which focus on sociological studies and cultural relations. Also I would like to reach feminist print and online media to share this story and to show that Chinese community undergoes profound changes in regard to gender relations and gender roles. I would like to share my vision of the new Chinese community with the rest of the world to show that feminist trends are strong not only in western communities but also in Chinese community as well.

The changes in gender relations, which I have described, have a considerable impact on our community and show the inevitable rise of feminism within Chinese community. My single story would finally change the public attitude to Chinese women as inferior to men to the extent that our community members both men and women would also re-evaluate their position and roles in the community life.

Finally, I would refer to A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen as the artifact, which contributes to retelling my story because what happens to Chinese women now is exactly what has happened to the main character of Ibsen’s play, Nora, who urged to get outside of traditional family boundaries and stand on the equal ground compared to men.
