China’s Generation Gap

BBC World Service

China has seen seismic political and social changes in the past few decades – from war, occupation and Chairman Mao’s Cultural Revolution, to the one-child policy, and economic reforms in the 80s and 90s, which saw the country open up to capitalist and global ideas. Haining Liu speaks to people from across the age divide asking whether, given these dramatic changes, there is now a generation gap around attitudes to family life, women’s roles, work, education and lifestyles.
