This paper discusses the women of China and the progress they've achieved over the last hundred years. The paper reviews how at the beginning of the 20th century, women throughout China, regardless of class or level of prestige, were subject to a number of traditional practices that gave them little or no freedom. Some of these traditional practices, such as foot binding, often resulted in terrible mutilations. Despite this, Chinese history does contain some notable female figures of prestige, and modern women have many of the same rights as their male counterparts.
