Language is a product of society; it is an artifact of culture. However, the biases and social issues caused by a language, itself, are often overlooked.

“Women in Chinese Characters” examines the perpetuation of misogyny and gender bias in Chinese society through an exploration of the negative and stereotypical connotations associated with female radical characters in the Chinese language. The exhibition is an experience for the audience to visualize these problems and read about Chinese women’s real experiences. Through a combination of a publication, motion graphic video, and an immersive visual space, the project aims to raise awareness of this issue and encourage critical reflection on the role of language in shaping cultural attitudes towards women.
