             A women's role in Confucian is hard. Women would always have a lower level of power than men did. They had to play a major role in society, to bring honor and courage. They were treated way differently compared to men. Women had to be filial not only to her parents, but the parent in-laws, husband, and her sons. They were taught many things. Women were taught to be quiet and respectful, and never talk over anybody. Chinese women just wanted to be determined and successful with their lives. It is tradition for women to abandon their birth families once they are married; instead they become part of their husband's family. The oldest male son, is the dominant one, who has the highest main role and responsibly to bring honor and courage to keep on going the family name. Most Chinese families worry if they don't have a male child that nobody will carry on the heir or take care of them once they are older. Women were the ones who technically took care of the whole family by having their daily routine of chores.
