A: In this multi-faceted society and the men’s role in family and marriage, is his role different from traditional roles? Can you talk a little about it?
B: In China, in all these years, starting from when new China was established, we have always been promotiong “equality between men and women”, this idea, I think, from a men’s point of view, I think in this aspect, our country has done a good job. Especially in the city, in educated classes, equality has done big results. Because in China, both men and women can have careers. Speaking from economical point of view, women has a lot of status also. So, their family status doesn’t differ much from the men. Also, speaking as a men, responsibilities in the family, I think, as equality and women’s rights increases, the women in the family have more and more function, more increases, men in this aspect, even though they still enjoy a lot of advantages because of the past, but as women’s status improves, in family men and women would combine their effort, I believe in solving family problems, they are about equal. I think, talking about equality, we can talk about some specific aspects. Such as in politics, currently in our country, men and women are equal in politics. Also, in family, it mostly is also. In work, also mostly equal, a lot of jobs, both men and women can do. And they accept women workers. A lot of employers. Also economically, we can say is also equal. Because everybody does the same job then they will get the same salaray. From these aspects I think in our country men and women are mostly equal. But there are also some problems, in some aspects such as in finding jobs, even though if they find jobs, they can work and get the same salary, but in job opportunities, women is still behind men. In this part, women is not as competitive as men. For example, many employers or bosses, they want to hire men, and accept men to the jobs, for women, they often think that women have a lot of family chores, they don’t have the same ability as men, so in job opportunities women have a harder time.
