About Chinese female migrant workers

出门拎个蛇皮袋 When they left they carried snakeskin bags
回来皮包加皮鞋 When they returned they had leather bags and shoes
不说再见说拜拜 Instead of “zaijian” they say “bye-bye”
乡邻误认小老外 Village neighbors mistake them for “little foreigners”


“The transformation of female migrant workers”, Anhui Daily, March the 9th, 1996
