Abstract

Chinese cinemas had undergone a series of development. Women’s roles in films were long being discussed. Two representative movies: Two Stage Sisters and Sophie’s Revenge, one from the socialist revolutionary era and one made during contemporary society, reflected feminist ideologies’ effects on movies. These two movies presented the trend of female characters changing from being affiliated to men to being socially independent. Under the influence of socialist theories, movies in the 1960s conveyed the common belief of women need to rely on men to survive. On the other hand, because of the twentieth century’s commercialization and capitalism, films included several exaggerated elements to entertain the audience and illustrated women as independent figures. The paper will go through the difference between movies from these two time periods and the relationship between ideologies from that time with the movie.
