Women in the Song Dynasty This part will evoke women’s life and rights in the Northern Song Dynasty. The Song Dynasty is often seen as the start of the decline of women status in the Chinese society: a revival of Confucianism led women political role to be reduced, as well as their public appearance compared to Tang Dynasty.

A few researches support this hypothesis. Morris and Peng (1994; Morris, Nisbett, & Peng, 1995) provided a description of cultural discrepancy in fundamental attribution for Chinese and Americans. Morris and Peng considered the account of the two tragic situations that took place in the United States, in the English language newspaper as well as in the Chinese language newspaper. They observed that the English newspaper contemplated more about the mental instability and other unfavourable dispositions of the criminal and assigned causes such as “ the man was mentally unstable”. In contrast, the Chinese newspaper highlighted the circumstantial, situational, and even societal factors (eg.,”the man did not get along with his
