In most western societies especially in the American society the awareness on female power is a prevalent issue that has already been promoted widely by feminists and womanists for decades However in most eastern countries particularly in China issues regarding female power are almost still unheard and unthought-of Yet this does not indicate that problems such as female subordination are nonexistent in China instead it represents a much more serious problem underneath For people in Chinese society issues that are being considered as female subordination in western societies is on another hand being seemed as nothing but a regular and natural phenomenon that simply need no discussions There is no awareness on the rising of female power because female status in Chinese society is being subordinated to the point that the idea of female subordination has been made into nonexistence As a result female subordination becomes a justified norm in Chinese society where even the women themselves swallow it unconsciously There are a variety of reasons that assisted in building the serious female subordination in Chinese society and one of the most major reasons is the traditional Chinese concubine system Therefore on this essay I am going to focus on discussing the roles of concubine system in subordinating females in Chinese society and also on the impact it has on the images and status of Chinese females in western societies To understanding the roles of concubine system in subordinating females in Chinese society one need to understand what is a concubine system first In the Unite States as cultural integration intensified knowledge on other cultures also increased and therefore the term concubine is probably not new From the Merriam-Webster Dictionary it explains concubine as a woman with whom a man cohabits without being married or one having a recognized social status in a household below that of a wife also refer to as a Mistress From the start of Chinese recorded history concubine system
