The Empress Dowager Cixi rose from the position of concubine to become the most powerful woman in China, in a reign that lasted 47 years – from 1861 to 1908. Seen here as a young woman, Cixi had the good fortune to bear the Xianfeng Emperor’s only male heir. After the death of the Emperor, Cixi ruled through her son, who was only five years old when his father died. Then, when the boy Emperor himself died at an early age, Cixi installed her nephew to the throne and ruled through him.

Women against feminism are actually saying "I don't care about the women in Saudi Arabia who are beaten and branded and burned with acid, I don't care about the babies in China who were "accidentally" aborted because they were female, I don't care about the FIVE year old who was raped to death by her father in India because I have my rights and my privilege so they aren't my problem."

#2 Fan Bing Bing for Madame-Figaro China 2012 This editorial interests me the most and may very well become the basis of the next part of my project. Fan Bing Bing a well renowned actor and model in China, portraying a "traditional" Chinese woman. Love the colours and props used in this, as well as the minimalist role in which the elements of these props/makeup play in the photo which despite the minimalism still give out a strong Easter Asian vibe.
