Abstract

Chinese society expects a woman to behave silent and have to endure everything that happens against her. Women are not appreciated in Chinese and Chinese-American societies. She is engrossed by Chinese women who are entirely dependent on men and whose feet are bound with the role as mothers forever. Many a time woman rises against a woman joining with male chauvinists. Sometimes they badly adhere to old customs and traditions. That gave way for underestimation of them. They have to hide their desires and feelings. The misery of women in China is that they cannot speak up and there is no choice for them to pick up and are restricted in the name of traditions and customs and fall as victims of pain and misery.
