In China, it seems that women are equal to men, as people said “women can hold half heaven”，women are encouraged to do what men can do. In fact, many Chinese women do not feel happily. As English medicinal (The Lancet) said: the suicide rate of man is higher than that of women all over the world, only in China, the suicide rate of women is high than that of men about 25 percent.
Chinese traditional culture prefer sons to daughters, it makes female women in rural face surviving pressure more than that of men. In city, career women have to give consideration to both job and domesticity, and also feel more pressure.
However, the most the biggest challenge and barrier to creating change in our community is that people especially female are numb about all the fact. Few media focus on the situation of women, and few people talk about the unfair under the ground.
How do I overcome these challenges and barriers? I am a journalist in a daily newspaper, now I am in charge of reporting the female affair. I report the women life more than before and discuss the fate of women more often. In the first, I think, people need to know how about reality. Sometime the report can help some women get help. Now, that is what I can do.
How to use PulseWire and other online communities to overcome these challenges in the future?
At the first, for my reporting, I can know women life in other country, and quote in the report. Second, when we talk about some policy, I can discuss it in PulseWire group and know different view in different county as reference. Because the barrier of the language, few women in China can log in the English website, few people know the reality about Chinese women, I think I can become the bridge to comminute the both.
