What was the role of women in Chinese families, and how did their role vary depending on social status?
In every way, women in Chinese society were inferior to males. Their major function in society was to serve as their husband's submissive. In general, women lack freedom in a variety of areas, such as their ability to get higher education and their ability to choose whether or not to divorce. Only males have the authority to divorce a woman if and only if she is unable to bear children. Women of higher social rank were restricted in their movement by tying their feet to prevent the development of their toes. They are enslaved by the cultural assumption that women with tiny feet are unsuitable for marriage. This has elevated the prestige of these women in society.
