The Chinese language, like all the world's languages, is rife with sexism. But due to its long history, its linguistic structure, and its complex character-based script, the Chinese language often exhibits sexism in surprising and subtle ways. This talk will explore the psychological role of language in perpetuating sexist attitudes toward women in China.

This event is co-sponsored by China Crossroads and GoEast Language Training.
