Her Words

Saturday, February 3 @ 1:15PM

By Jing Liu

In Southern China, a 500-year old women’s written language, with only 7 inheritors left, captured the pain and bitterness of local women. It was thriving in the time before 1949, when women were banned from schools. After the New China was established, the women were liberated from conservative life and went to school. The language faced the danger of disppearing. Now it is exposed to the public and revealed the secret history of local women. While facing the threat of its death, the language is thriving in a new way.
