Several years ago, I read 'The Good Women of China' by Xinran. It bothered me, though others thought it was incredible. It seemed aimed at a gullible Western audience. Although I sympathised with the experiences shared in the book, I felt it deliberately misrepresented Chinese women and society. In my blog, I hope to present a more realistic picture of Chinese women, based upon observations on my husband's 'ordinary' family. Names and places will be deliberately omitted.
