Stereotypes of Chinese Ladies

Gender responsibility attitudes that have historically contributed to economic disparity for people( such as Confucian ideas of noble ladies) have not lost favor in the midst of China’s economic growth and revolution. This study looks into how female college students feel about being judged according to the conventionally held belief that women are righteous. Participants in Experiment 1 were divided into groups based on their level of work or family orientation, and they were then asked to complete a vignette describing one of three scenarios: group or individual good stereotype evaluation. Unstereotypical favorable evaluation was also possible. Finally, members gave ratings for how they liked the female destination. The findings indicated that women who were more focused on their jobs detested virtuous stereotype-based evaluations more than people whose families were. The belief that positive stereotypes are prescriptive, according to regression analysis, mediates this difference.

Different prejudices of Chinese people include those of being amazing” Geisha girls,” not being viewed as capable of leading, and being expected to be submissive or passive. The persistent bright risk notion, in particular, fuels anti-asian attitude and has led to damaging policies like the Chinese Exclusion Act and the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World war ii.

Less is known about how Chinese girls react to positive preconceptions, despite the fact that the bad ones they encounter are well-documented. By identifying and analyzing Eastern women’s sentiments toward being judged according to the conventional positive noble notion, this studies seeks to close this gap.
