Female X

Director Statement

I have seen a lot of car stickers on the street in China, and the most annoying ones are those related to "female drivers", such as "Road rookie, sharp braking diva"; or "female driver, tailgating must be married", and so on. “Female” is in a situation. Like female police officers, female judges and female leaders, these "female XX" together constitute a gender order.
We are often frustrated when confronted with the implications of being singled out. Prejudice never goes away, and even though the accident rate for women drivers is much lower than that of men, gender takes the place of fact, and "women drivers" take on a demeaning role that they shouldn't have to take on. The only thing we can do is to redefine "female XX".
