Submissive wife school shut down in China

Chinese authorities have closed down controversial “women’s virtue” courses in the country’s Liaoning province. The female students were reportedly taught the “traditional” value of being submissive to their husbands.

The school in question, run by the Fushun Traditional Values Association in Liaoning province in the north-east of China, was shut down on Sunday, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

The school’s courses offered some unusual training for its female students, teaching them “women’s virtue.” The training reportedly entailed waking up at 4.30 every morning and spending eight hours doing household chores under the supervision of the tutors, according to local media.

The authorities ordered the closure of the illegal school and dismissed all the students citing a social morality violation.
