From the paper:

"The "China Daily," discusses women's rights in China in a positive manner, bringing up several points that show women in China have no fewer rights than women in the United States. Unfortunately, there are many topics that were not discussed in this paper, that prove women in China still have a long road ahead of them in achieving true equal rights.

The article says that women of China did not have to wait 144 years after the forming of a constitution to vote. "American women belatedly obtained equal voting rights 144 years after the founding of the United States, while Chinese women were grated such rights immediately after the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949" (Editors, 1995)."
