[Writer] Zhou Guoping’s Weibo:

What I meant is not asking women to return to the family. The liberation of women, equal rights between men and women—I am for both. If a woman is talented and successful, I appreciate her even more. Yet, however talented a woman is, however successful she is, if she doesn’t want to or doesn’t know how to be a gentle partner, a considerate wife, or a loving mother, then she will significantly lose my favor.
