I believe opportunities for women and men should be equal.  Many traditional cultures proscribe rules for women -- rules to keep women subservient to men and control their daily functions and their opportunities.  These paintings show sections from the "Niuerjing," the Chinese book of rules for women, and the figures of the women tortured and twisted by the unnatural controls.  Women must rise above this and become who they are and can be.
