Similarly China also saw the same changes with the urban life changing their perceptions and ways of lives especially for the people that had gone to the urban life. There were changes in the people's views and some had radicalized and changed their ways completely.

[...] This era gave rise to some of the most influential women and it changed the perception of the women in the society.

This gave rise to changes in the behaviors and also in a slow empowering of the women. Works Cited Bailey, P. J. Women and gender in twentieth-century China. Hampshire: Palgrave Macmillan Print.
