The paper explains that there is a double standard that Chinese women must live by today. The two standards exist from the traditional past of China as well as from the modern China that has evolved since the 1970s. In the traditional sense, Chinese women are expected to care for their husbands' children and the home. The paper describes how they are socially and economically considered subservient creatures that exist for the glorification of man and must remain gentle kind and giving beings that work to create a world for man that is socially acceptable.

From the Paper:

"In the modern sense, Chinese women have the right to enter the workforce, be educated and have their voices heard within the social order. However, the issue for Chinese women today lies in being capable of melding these two worlds to be considered culturally correct from both perspectives."
