Historical Developments of the Roles and Status of Women in China

The role of a person is not static. Changes in roles and status are due to the needs, culture, the value of the times, and foreign influences. Dr. Chung will address the causes of the historical development of women’s role and status in China. She will address the influences that might have caused women to change from being warriors in ancient times to the submissive and subservient women with bound feet.
