Abstract

Since the first image of Chinese woman appeared in American film in the year of 1919, Chinese women’s images in American films have experienced a great transformation in the past century. With the development and opening-up of China, more and more Chinese female characters appear in different types of American films, and their images have also become richer and diversified. It well reflects the transformation of Chinese women’s cultural identity in American films. This paper firstly introduces the cultural background of Chinese women’s images in American films, and summarizes the theoretical background of the study of the cultural identity of Chinese women reflected in American films. It then analyses the transformation and development of Chinese women’s cultural identity reflected in American films during different periods of time in history. As time changes, Chinese women’s images and cultural identity in American films have also changed.
