The sexism in daily life, the really good website /book James recommended.

project website:

I am consider how to change the status, but the more research I do, the more difficult I felt.

Society has its own public judge. Now there are some of people realized and changed their mind. If more people changed, then the both gender will live few pressure.

A.In china,How are women represented in the media?

Some advertisements represent how the people behind them think of women.


“The most achievement for a women is to be a good wife and mother,why you will to struggle the chance and place with men?”

(The government marriage registry posters of Xicheng,BEIJING)



“Do the job you want just like Fxxk the women you like.”

the chinese“干”have the both meaning,and another meaning is very vulgar.

(advertisements of Jingdong nurse day)

more examples I will paste in the sketch book.

B.background to gender inequality in China.

Everyday sexism ,whatever the book or the website, this project are perfect. And read the context in this website, also remind me some sexism in my relatives family. My father and uncles bored in a peasantry family of a small country , and when I was young , my female relatives have the low level of the family, they even not allowed to eating seat in front of the desk—only standing.   In the country,the women’s status are lower than in the city.

And there also are a new word“straight man cancer”appeared.

“A woman only has one ambition. In her heart, she sees love and childrearing as the most important thing in life.” On January 12, 2015, scholar Zhou Guopingthus tweeted on Weibo, the popular Chinese microblogging platform. Chinese commentators quickly diagnosed Zhou, a popular public intellectual at the state think tank Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, with “Straight Man Cancer.” The term “Straight Man Cancer,” coined in mid-2014, refers to chauvinist, judgmental behavior and language that propels sexist double standards or belittles women. Zhou’s controversial tweets exposed him to public scrutiny and attracted state attention. Communist Party mouthpiece People’s Daily re-posted an editorial, calling for the use of law and public opinion in order to “prevent ‘Straight Man Cancer’” in the private realm from “spreading into the public domain.” State news agency Xinhua also published the transcript of a newspaper interview with Zhou, in which he shamelessly called himself a “feminist.”

(‘Straight Man Cancer’: Sexism with Chinese Characteristics,

According to them, women’s only role was to get married and have children, ideally sons.And sadly there still have some women got the same views.

It is a congratulations to find a lover to get married.But the most treat a women like a item is some part about marriage.

Leta Hong Fincher vividly portrayed in her ground-breaking 2014 book Leftover Women: The Resurgence of Gender Inequality in Modern China .

FM1 research question

To begin with my FMP I start to do the research, I try to gather the information I get about gender sexism in china and some people comments of gender and feminism. And surprisingly the sexism cases amounts are large than we are realize.

And sadly there are amount of those are public advertisements or the official posters, even the official government agency.


“The most achievement for a women is to be a good wife and mother,why you will to struggle the chance and place with men?”

(eg: The marriage registry posters of Xicheng,BEIJING)

Sometimes you may think it is not a problem,but when look in details,It seems like everywhere gender sexism Existed.

This situation make me consider a lot, for my FMP, which kind of audience I should focus on?

I am consider how to change the situation, but the more research I do, the more difficult I felt.

The society operate by the few people, but  the majority of this part people are have traditional Chinese idea about gender.

At the beginning I choose the university student as the audience, after I do some research, actually I found the most sexism are from the society and public crowd. And more deep thinking and research, I back to the university students, because one report of official website “baihewang”in 2010,there are 71% of female university students still think“have a good marriage better than well done yourself.” It can be say the majority of students are the tomorrow’s basic social people. So it has the necessary to focus on this group of people.

So my research question is

“How to engage more Chinese university students think about gender equality and try to change the recently situation.”

to make people more thinking “The response and the right of the gender.”“The Person You Can Depend On Is Yourself.”

And “Do not give too much family pressure to the man.”
