Topic of the month: 10 Strong Women in China
Although in China, men have a very prominent position in society, throughout history several women played an unique role in their time. We look at their lifes and discuss their exceptional contribution - from Wu Zetian, the first and only Empress of China to Soong Qingling, wife of Sun Yatsen, China's first president, the current first lady and Jiang Qing, the fourth wife of Chairman Mao.
