Chinese people are more conservative than Americans and Europeans. Some people think it is disrespectful and wrong to talk about sex and women’s bodies. So I think feminist movement is very necessary and important throughout human history and it should be continued now and in the future. As the reading “The Body Through Women’s Eyes” by Joanna Frueh says, feminist artists can “show that women could become makers of meaning, as opposed to being bearers of man’s meaning” (Broude 190). It also states that due to the invention of contraceptives, women have freedom to demand for sexual pleasure and sex is no longer considered as a shameful act. Men and women should be equally treated regarding sexuality.I and my family belong to the middle class of the socio-economic group. I do not think that my family is wealthy and prestigious enough to be labeled as upper class. However, my parents can afford to pay for my studies abroad and we live a good life, so I see my family as middle class.

Some of the students were international students from Asia and Europe.The neighborhood in which I grew up mainly consisted of my father’s colleagues. Then we moved to a new community and the people living there were not familiar with us and I barely knew them. Most of my neighbors were people belonging to my parents’ age group and most of them were seniors. The friends with whom I grew up were mostly the children of my father’s colleagues. Since we all live close to each other and each of us is the only child in our family, we became good friends since childhood. I think a desirable friend to bring home is the one that is sincere, honest, and friendly. He or she must be my good friend and we know each other very well, and I trust him or her so I am happy to bring him or her home. I think friends should have
