Talk: Three weddings and a divorce - China Culture Center
Title: "Three weddings and a divorce" -- From Bound Feet to High Heels: Beijing Women in the 20th century.

When were women first allowed to attend school in the capital? When was the tradition of bound feet abandoned? How did communism affect the idea of how a good woman should behave?

"Three weddings and a divorce" is the story of three women living in Beijing. Grandmother Zhang with "liberation feet", the retired office worker Sun, and Xue Rui, a career woman in her thirties. Between them they cover the last hundred years of Beijing's history. Through their lives, marriages, and one divorce, the transformation of the women's role in the capital of China is explored. Based on research and interviews, and told through a selection of historical photographs.
