Q: Gender inequality - better in China than in the U.S.?

I was reading the article on the main page about influential businesspeople in China, and I think I read somewhere else out of those 50, 3 were women. Now, that's a terrible number. But, if you picked the 50 wealthiest people in the States, would you get 3 women?

Basically, more than that, I guess what I'm asking is whether or not gender inequality is considered a big issue in China or not.

Looks like the "me Too" movement has taken another casualty.

 

Funny how if its a leftists it's called allegations but for the right it's a fact already before a trial.

That it exist, yes, China has a male dominated way of life up and down their society.  Is it a big issue here ?.  I would say no, women here seem to be reasonable satisfied with their secondary role in some ways.  Some individual protesters may flare up once in a while, both in my opinion, women's liberation as for example in USA has not landed here at all yet.

I guess that your question does confused me a little, and the only way to answer it as you asked is to say that for Chinese men, yes, in China is better than in USA, but for Chinese women is it not, but they do not really know that yet. Too many years of tradition are carried on their backs !.

I would say no, it isn't better. Women in China certainly don't have equal status. Equal opportunity exists on paper but there is still a lot of sexism in attitudes about relationships and in the workplace.

 

China is one of the few countries where there is a higher rate of suicide among women than men.

To answer your first question, 6 of the top 30 wealthiest people in the US are women, according to Forbes.

I asked my students to do an essay on gender equality in higher-level managerial positions... most of them, boys and girls (18-20yo) thought that men are more capable than women in most regards - except for looking after the house and family. Even those who supported having more women in executive positions were doing so only to balance out the men, by being more 'careful', and more better at human resource stuff.

 

Most were under the delusion that women aren't as logical as men, nor as capable on their own to run a business, and their emotions, desire for children, and monthly menses, would all bring about the downfall of the company...

 

Then, I asked them why the girls were all better students than the boys... no answer Tongue

You ever heard of Oprah Winfrey yeah she's pretty much the wealthiest female or one of the wealthiest females in the states richer than most men! I would say inequality in the states is bigger than here. I've seen and known many females in high positions living in CHina....most of the schools are run by females here...

At last the clouds are gone and manna from heaven is upon us, all married closet gay men now have something to observe at a football game, perhaps China needs this more than America though. Now we need transgendered mascots and a rainbow at the goalpost or net depending of your version of football and world peace will finally prevail, can you feel the love brothers and sisters.

Some women just can't keep their pants on and control themselves, good to know women are finally changing the norms, now some female, please sexually harrass me, I think i can handle it and survive, but I may need some strong drugs afterward for the emotional scars of being used just for my body.

This is hilarious in my sick twisted mind. A womens prime minister meeting in Canada and the male Japanese prime minister is the only male by appearance there, but in Canada you can claim to be a female and you are, so what's the problem? where's the love for the japanese man oppressively raised as a disgusting male all of his life. Rejoice the world is a better place, now, let's kill the infidel males that have not conformed to female gods yet.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
