Project Description

The lighter side of how sons and daughters are viewed in traditional Chinese families.

This is me, Jennifer, when I was about three or four years old. There must be a mistake. Jennifer is a girl’s name, but this is a boy! There was no mistake. This is me. Dressed like a boy. My parents were very traditional Chinese…My mother used to say, “You were meant to be a boy. It was the neighbour’s fault!”
