Gender role attitudes that have historically contributed to economic inequality for women ( e .g., Confucian ideas of virtuous women ) have not lost favor in the midst of China’s economic boom and reformation. This analyze looks into how female college students feel about being judged on the basis of the conventionally held belief that women are virtues. Participants in Study 1 were divided into groups based on their level of job or family orientation, and they were then asked to complete a vignette describing one of three scenarios: group or individual beneficial stereotype evaluation. Unstereotypical optimistic evaluation was also possible. Then, individuals gave ratings for how much they liked the adult specific. The findings indicated that women who were more focused on their careers detested noble stereotype-based evaluations more than those who are family-oriented. According to regression research, the belief that positive stereotypes are normative mediates this difference.

Other preconceptions of Chinese women include those of being wild” Geisha girls,” not being viewed as capable of leading, and being expected to be obedient or passive. The persistent yellowish hazard notion, in particular, feeds anti-asian attitude and has led to harmful guidelines like the Chinese Exclusion Act and the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World war ii.

Less is known about how Chinese women react to positive stereotypes, despite the fact that the unfavorable ones they encounter are well-documented. By identifying and examining Eastern women’s attitudes toward being judged according to the conventional positive noble stereotype, this analysis seeks to close this gap.
