The relationship between gender roles and the Confucian influenced patriarchal hegemony in China has been very dynamic. This ethnography incorporates one native Chinese’s view on the present society and compares those statements with current research with the goal of exploring the participating factors. The main focus of this paper is to focus on the areas of gender, employment, and employment expectations. Through a series of interviews, this author hopes to present to the reader the salient themes of gender and employment that are currently pervasive throughout this great country. By identifying the factors that may be eliciting this discriminatory attitude, these causes could then be adapted to promote true equality while still maintaining the cultural and societal values.
