Status of women By ANNABEL FERR1MAN Dispatch of The London How sad it is to be a Nothing on earth is held so cheap No one is glad when a girl is born By her the family sets no store. This pre-revolutionary poem is in striking contrast to one of chairman Mao Tse- Tung's frequently quoted have changed and today men and women are equal. Whatever men comrades can women comrades can too In the past 25 years the status of women in China has been in the land distribution of 1949 women in the countryside had their names put on land deeds for the first time and were enabled to inherit the marriage law of 1950 made bigamy and concubinage and with the setting up of the communes in it was agreed that women peasants should be paid separately from the head of the household But it would be an exaggeration to say that women in China are now the equal in either status or earning power of their husbands During a recent tour of it emerged that they were under-represented in the more highly paid professional jobs such as engineering and university and on the revolutionary which run the agricultural and social enterprises Certain lower paid such as were almost exclusively _ reserved for women while the wage rates for light Herald Family where women were well were lower than those for heavy where they were not In very few cases were women being paid less than men for the same work. The situation was rather that women were unable to secure a fair share of the better paid jobs Obviously one factor to be taken into account was that heavier work received higher and these jobs were considered unsuitable for but even in those better paid jobs which did not require great physical women did not fare very well Since all women leaving their children or in a minority of cases in care centres after 56 days maternity one might have expected that the division of labor in the home would be fairly equal But old habits seem to survive the most dramatic and many of the Chinese men we met confessed that they left most of the cooking to their wives and more customs such as arranged marriages apparently still exist in parts of the countryside. University uncovered the fact that some families demanda payment for their daughters to compensate for the transfer of a worker to her husband's while some since schooling is not are still slack about sending their daughters to keeping them at home instead to do the housework There is no that the Communist party leadership is fighting such attitudes. The present campaign against Confucius lays considerable emphasis on the reactionary nature of his views on women and his belief that they should serve three masters their husbands and sons Women themselves have done a great deal to establish their equality in Chinese society Over the past 20 they have set up a network of neighborhood and street which are responsible for the running of small factories and kindergartens for school teachers and others whose work place is too small for a kindergarten of its own The neighborhood which covers a smaller area than that of the street also organizes street cleaning and the political education of women. It should also be borne in mind that before the revolution the married woman was little more than a slave Wife polygamy and concubinage were a wife was not supposed to go beyond the courtyard of her house for the first three years of marriage and was subservient to her who could beat her Widows were not allowed to remarry and had to continue living with her husband's family NAVY AIR FORCE Ladies' Auxiliary Unit 58 SPRING TEA May 8th 2 to 5 p.m. ANAF Hall 5th Ave. S.
