It would be helpful to select those students to read orally who can do so with expression and animation or for the teacher to read a few tales to the class. Throughout the course, the folktale presented will parallel some fact or information concerning customs, traditions or anecdotes which relate to Chinese women. In addition to a unit exam, students will be required to write their own Chinese folktale, one which reflects the traditional view of women. It will be essential to make provisions for weekly quizzes in order to insure that students are doing the assigned reading at home and to ascertain how well they understand the literal and thematic material presented in the unit.
Course Content The traditional role of women in Chinese society was one of subservience and humility. Chinese girls were more likely than boys to suffer infanticide in poor families. A daughter was referred to as an outsider because she would no longer bring any economic benefit to the family. He elucidates the Chinese customs surrounding marriage and the role of women in the home. These selections are important in helping students to understand the importance of tradition and custom in Chinese culture and how the entire Chinese society was structured to keep women in an inferior position.
See Sample Lesson 1. For a firsthand account of the tyranny of the Chinese attitude toward women and its impact, The Woman Warrior is must reading for students. Teachers may use their own discretion as to whether they wish students to read all or parts of the book. Suicide by Chinese women was not uncommon. The pressures of an unhappy arranged marriage, a tyrannical and sometimes cruel mother-in-law or simply the burdens of life were often the causes.
The popular notion that the Chinese maiden and her lover killed themselves because a marriage was forbidden did not represent the reality. However, this myth found its way into many of the folktales and into Chinese holidays. Even the origin of the Feast of Hungry Ghosts and All Souls Night of China lies in the sad little tale of two disconsolate lovers who, separated by disapproving parents, flung themselves in a river and drowned.

They abound in the supernatural. It was a common practice for rural women to give birth in pigsties in order to fool the jealous gods who do not snatch piglets but newborn babies. The Chinese explanation of crib death perhaps. There is a vivid account of young girls being sold as slaves because their families can no longer feed them.
There is also a reference to the common practice of a midwife or relative preparing a box of clean ashes beside the birth-bed if the newborn were a baby girl.
The ritual also follows the custom of premarital freedom until the end of the first pregnancy. The first man who sleeps with her receives the poison in her body and in a short time dies. The young heroine in this story refuses to sleep with a potential victim so she in turn falls violently ill. The folktale is a reflection of a rather negative view of women. Where is the setting for this story? Why did Ma agree to sleep with the girl? Why do you think the girl sacrificed her life for Ma?
Why, in this story, is it considered shameful for young girls to be chaste?
