The intolerable pain of Fan Huixiang, suffering from terminal cancer, probably decreased as love of her life, Yu Haining hold her hand in such difficult time. Both of them decided to get married. As soon as Yu got the news of Fan being diagnosed with cancer, he left his job and went to the hospital in Zhengzhou to be with his girlfriend.

20 Chinese Women Before and After Plastic Surgery

Images showing the drastic transformation of 20 different women who’ve undergone plastic surgery procedures were recently published online.

Most of the women sought out similar treatments that have become widely popular in Asia. This includes double eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty using a silicone implant to augment the bridge of the nose. Many of the women also underwent V-line surgery, a jawline contouring procedure popular in South Korea that gives the face a more narrow, heart-shaped appearance. Wide eyes, high nose bridges and a narrow faces with pointed chins are coveted features among many Asian women, and a number of Chinese women (and men) are flocking to South Korea in hopes to attain this look at the hands of skilled surgeons.

Kenya Women March for Right to Wear Mini-Skirts

“The grainy mobile phone video shows a mob of Kenyan men surround a woman and grab, grasp and yank her clothes until she is naked. Several such videos have emerged recently of attacks by males who deem a woman to be provocatively dressed. The attacks have created a groundswell of anger that saw mostly women protesters flood downtown Nairobi Monday. The hashtag #MyDressMyChoice is trending in Kenya’s social media, as this East African country sees a clash between new, Western lifestyles and traditional African ways. Rachel Machua wore what she called “a little black dress … my normal outfit” to Monday’s protest. She views the recent attacks as stemming from socio-economic conditions: Lower income men are attacking successful, well-dressed women. The attacks are not overtly religious in nature, though this is a conservative, mostly Christian country. The women at the march described “normal” levels of sexual harassment over the years and said that peers will warn other women that “you’re gonna get undressed” for wearing a particular outfit. Women play an active role in Kenyan society. The country’s foreign minister is a woman, though few women hold high-ranking elected office. Parliament is a virtual men’s club, unlike in neighboring Rwanda, where more than half of parliament is female”. – Jason Straziuso via The Associated Press.
