Have you ever heard of 女书?

Last year I discovered 女书, which is a secret language that women created in 19th century to escape from the patriarchal Chinese society of that time.

They used this language to write, and to sing, about their sufferings, to exchange advice, to discuss similar experiences.

This language still exists in Jiangyong countship.

Have you ever heard of it?

For anyone interested into learning more, we have an article about Nüshu here:
