A single woman was taught to obey her father, and when she married to obey her husband and new parents-in-law. Wealthy families had servants. They lived with the family and helped with everyday tasks, like this figure of a servant girl, who is making bread. In an ideal Chinese home, three generations (grandparents, parents, and children) of the same family lived under one roof.

The head of the household was the grandfather or eldest male. Once the grandfather died, the children divided the household and made their own homes. But even if he was living independently, the eldest son had primary. It is the Chinese tradition to record family members in a book, including every male born in the family, who they are married to, etc.

A similar sentiment was expressed in the Book of Documents in proverbial form: “When the hen announces the dawn, it signals the demise of the family.” During Han times ( BCE – CE), both the administrative structure of the centralized state and the success of Confucianism helped shape the Chinese family system and women’s place in it.
