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 research looks into how female college students feel about being judged according to the conventionally held belief that women are virtues. Participants in Trial 1 were divided into groups based on their level of job or home orientation, and they were then asked to complete a scene describing one of three scenarios: group or individual good stereotype evaluation. Next, participants gave feedback on how they felt about the adult objective. The findings indicated that women who were more focused on their jobs detested noble stereotype-based assessment more than ladies whose families were. According to analysis examination, the perception that positive stereotypes are prescriptive mediates this difference.

Different prejudices of Chinese women include being amazing” Geisha girls,” hardly being viewed as capable of leading or becoming leaders, and being expected to be subservient or silent. The persistent yellowish peril myth, in particular, feeds anti-asian attitude and has led to harmful laws like the Chinese Exclusion Act and the internment of Japanese Americans during World war ii.

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