If you get familiar with them, they lose their humility; if you are distant, they resent it.”(In Chinese子曰：“唯女子与小人难养也。近之则不逊，远之则怨。”)I think when this sentence is translated into English cannot completely express its meaning ,but it means that man are more honorable than woman and woman are looked down on. At that time, women’s desires are oppressed and always follow their husband even if they are not willing to .I don’t agree with this value no matter it is adopted in the past or in nowadays think man and woman are equal, they should have the same rights and share the same resources, and this help build the harmony and stable
Many cultures adopt the gender inequality; which brings disadvantages to the race itself. For example, one of the cultures that adapt gender inequality is China. The Chinese preferred to have sons rather than daughters because they believe that the sons can carry the family name and prolong the generations. According to Brooks, the over number of male population in China causes the increase of population of men but lower population number to women. Thus, the number of men that doesn’t have a wife increases and can’t prolong generations.
It is inferred from the data-medal tally that Chinese sportswomen contribute significantly to the success of China. Nonetheless, the validity of this study still stands, as the case study of Li Na shows that women’s contributions to the sports sector indeed improve women's social status, although it is minimal compared to the increased social-economic opportunities from the reform period. 2) Most information found states that women are still experiencing discrimination and gender inequality in modern China. In terms of jobs, salary or healthcare, men still benefits more than women in terms of social status. Policies implemented by the Chinese Communist Party throughout the decades are not effective to a large extent in improving the social status of women in China.
According to the traditional Chinese cultural beliefs, home is the place where women are viewed (de Leon and Ho 1994). The hierarchical family structures are also a reflection of the workplaces where the leaders are typically male and they tend to have absolute authority (Chee and West 2004; Cullen 1999). Even though the issue of gender inequality is widely reported, it is not acknowledged in Hong Kong, that there is discrimination. They have the optimistic view about women in Hong Kong enjoying a higher status than the women in other Asian societies. This kind of ideology characterises lack of awareness which does not reflect the realities within the workplace (Bernie Mak et.
This kind of stereotype leads to the low economic participation of women and attracts the government’s attention. Some politicians and feminists believe that as long as the government is involved, the gender gap in economic participation can be easily reduced. In the contrary, Although the government is involved, the gap still can not be easily reduced due to lack of awareness or execution. In this essay, I am going to look at China and Japan because these two Asian countries share the similar cultural base and both governments have relevant policies about women economic participation. Using these case studies, I will evaluate the precondition needed to reduce the gender gap in economic participation, which I identify in this case to be proper social norms with appropriate government regulating
The change of pop idols from 1980s to 2010s in China By Sharon Yin Pop idols in China, such as Bingbing Fan, are well known in China and around the world. These pop stars have deeply affected the entertainment field and made China more popular around the world. Style in the past In the 80s, people focused on the stars’ skills. Both the male actors and the female actresses also would not put on too much bright colored make-up. They did not have the kind of technology to offer cosmetic surgeries so they would not “lie” to the audience with their faces.
This leads to "women viewing their bodies as a never-ending project, with the goal of appearing as a younger woman" (Martens, in class). The more women are expected to appear youthful, the more society pushes these beauty standards which in turn perpetuates the issue and allows skin care companies to continue profiting off an abundance of anti-aging skin care products. Not only are these skin care products often expensive, they are almost exclusively targeted towards women rather than for both women and men. This perpetuates the double-standards of beauty for women and men. Men are not expected to purchase such products and are often praised for their aging, leading them to not having to worry about their skin or appearance as they age, while women continue to fork out money to meet unrealistic
In Thailand and Burma, the Kayan people there think that lengthening their necks is a kind of beauty. Also, in the past imperial Chinese time, rotund women were treated as beautiful. The extraordinary standard of beauty indicates that the term, beauty, diversifies over places and time. People may not agree or accept such kind of standard in their own perspective, but they still cannot deny that those judgement exist as defining beauty should come from everyone’s subjectivity, instead of a typical standard which people should
While white is regarded as purity, innocence and virginity in Christian, it is the color of mourning in traditional Chinese culture ("White," n.d.). As a result, it was impossible for a Chinese bride to wear in white in the past. Nevertheless, due to cultural exchanges so far, Chinese people have gradually absorbed elements of Christian culture and white wedding dresses are now commonly accepted. In addition, because of poverty, some countries in Africa do not celebrate thinness the way Asian people do. Famously, the country of Mauritania idolizes overweight women since it is seen as a sign of wealth and fertility in their society (Phan, 2015).
Dove once posted a photo of an “average” women on their website, with a poll that asked “Fat of Fabuluos?”. After considering the responses of customers, the term “Fat” won the majority of responses. Which resulted in the removale of the photo from the website • A less dangerous threat to Dove is the fact that the brand is only popular in modern countries which has higher income. • Additionlly, some customers have complained that the prices of soap products are high in under developed countries like India. Thereofre, Dove must develop a strategy to lower the prices of its products to allow more sales in both modern and less developed countries, for both middle and upper class group of people.
