Episode number 2 of Series “Long Bow Trilogy”.
Despite the tremendous advances women in China have made, serious problems continue. Long Bow women talk about love, marriage, work, birth control, birth customs and the now outlawed custom of foot binding. Moving interviews with Ling Qiao and her mother-in-law draw us into their lives.
