#87: 女汉子

女汉子的鼻祖? 女汉子的鼻祖?

今天,我要给大家介绍一个流行词,叫做“女汉子”。这个词刚刚被一本语言杂志评选为“2013年十大流行语”之一。现在,有很多女孩子喜欢把自己叫做“女汉子”。在刚刚过去的2013年,很多热播电影和电视剧,都有一些“女汉子”的形象。那么,“女汉子”究竟是什么意思呢?

在汉语中,“汉子”指的是男人。一般来说,“汉子”比较强壮,非常有男子气概。“汉子”,也可以说是“爷们儿”。那么,为什么会出现“女汉子”呢?“女汉子”其实就是像男人一样的女人。现在,有许多女孩子,性格独立、行为果断。一般男人才做的事情,她们也敢去做。在工作中,她们能像男人一样去奋斗,甚至比男人更努力。这些女孩子,不像以前传统女人那样,顺从、温柔、依赖男人。在传统中国人的观念中,女人应该是像“水”一样温柔的。“男主外,女主内”的意思就是说:男人应该出去工作,而女人应该照顾家庭。而“女汉子”就不一样了。她们自己掌握自己的生活和事业,自己也可以照顾好自己。比如:女汉子不需要男人帮忙,自己就可以开瓶盖、修电脑、提行李箱、干粗活、拍蟑螂等等。

“女汉子”的出现,体现了现代社会对女人的要求有了改变。不依靠男人、独立自主的女人,得到了人们的赞赏和认可。传统的中国文化是“重男轻女”的。但是现在,男人和女人的地位越来越平等了,气质和性格的差别也越来越小了。女人也可以比男人还成功。所以就出现了越来越多的“女汉子”。

    Good lesson but of course this attitude is not new in China but was never so widespread as now. I would say the number one hao hanz was Qiu Jin who opposed the Ch'ing Dynasty and was beheaded in 1907. A true heroine!

    Until now, I never understood why so many girls joked to me saying they were 女汉子 or 女汉纸. They explained the meaning similar to above in which I said was a good thing for them, but they said it's a very bad thing because it goes against China's traditional views and boys won't like girls with such attitudes. I think one of the main cultural aspects In my country is being able to take care of oneself, independent of other's help or support, and I respect that in people, so I hope more Chinese girls can become 女汉子, according to this article's meaning.

  • david with that

    Can you please put the texts also in Pinyin? I think many people like me want to learn spoken Chinese but do not have the time to learn the characters. For this Pinyin is invaluable. By the way wonderful site thank you so much.

    不知道博主会不会看……
    无意间发现这个网站,我觉得耳目一新。注意到VOA有Special English但是没有听说央广有慢速中文(只是没有听说),我好奇地搜了一下就发现了这个。觉得很有用也很有帮助,本人是英语专业一枚,打算考外汉的研究生,趁着还有时间想接触一下汉语教学的东西,可能对以后自己的师范技能也有帮助。关键是真心喜欢教汉语啊啊啊!!
    话不多说,祝网站越办越好!

    The audio is just an MP3 embedded in the page; you can view the page source and find the .mp3. It should play within your web page with any add-on that can play MP3s. Do you have audio on other web pages? MP3 is a very simple and commonly-used format. You could also download the MP3 and open in your music player.

    • Thanks for help other users to find download link, now after some tinkering I have solved the problem, you should be able to find all the download links below each player. Thanks again and best, Xinyu

    Last week our Chinese teacher introduced Slow Chinese to the class and we listened to "A Bite of China". I found it extremely helpful.
    I wanted to listen to other installments but somehow I can't get the audio. Do I need special application for this?

    • Hi guys, thanks for constantly reminding me of this problem. Now I have update some settings, you should be able to find download links for each podcast. Have a nice time!
