attempts to show how collectivization is good for her, her family and her village. Creates a tight knit society Shares tools gender as a category of analysis and think about how women's liberation is depicted in the film. xiang says its terrible if a man an cant have his wife obey him – this shows men thought women needed to obey them even if its against their wishes due to collectiviscism and the creation of the communes the women feel like a part of something bigger than themselves which is their bond. When the husband is telling the wife who are you? After she wont listen to him, she responded I am a member of the commune, this shows the state empowering women through the communes to stay united and not let men put them down or their liberation down. Xiaung is doing anything he can to keep her under control including pretending to join the carrying team inorder to minimize their interaction so there is less gossip How does this film attempt to communicate a state vision that links collectivization and women's liberation? Collectivizing allows women to form a tight knit community and support each others especially in their process of liberation so men cannot put them down.

Work Advertise why they should work properly and focus on quality of work instead of speed and earning more points for poor work Keep in mind that this is a propaganda film that communicates an ideal vision, but also communicates real challenges that the CCP had already faced in implementing collectivization during the 1950s . Thus, the film was produced as a pedagogical tool to facilitate the state's effort to revive collectivization after the Great Leap Forward and to convince the peasants to reembrace the process and the People's Communes.
