Chinese opera survived the passing of the centuries, the coming and going of dynasties, and has many strong female roles, though for most of its history, no females to play them. Women in China, especially of the upper class, had to observe very reserved and controlled conduct, and for the most part confined themselves indoors. It was only in the beginning in the 1930s, it became acceptable for women to perform in the opera.
