ABSTRACT

Different from the way of western thinking, the way of Chinese thinking is constructed by the viewpoint of Yin-yang which is the foundational viewpoint in Chinese traditional culture before the May 4th Movement. Under the Yin-yang viewpoint, there are many different ways of press, especially the press of gender. The thinking way of men as yang and women as yin which leads to the humble women and the high men predominates in the traditional China. The first and most important for Chinese women to gain a faire and equal society, they ought to destroy the traditional way of thinking under the leading view of Yin-yang viewpoint. From the May 4th Movement, the traditional way of thinking in China has been destroyed by the radical thinkers including women thinkers. However, owing to the political reasons, the traditional way of thinking in China still has its power. Therefore, it is very necessary for Chinese women to use the western contemporary radical thoughts such as the deconstructionism to destroy the foundational thinking of Yin-yang viewpoint to gain a relatively faire and equal society.
