半边天

bànbiāntiān

half the sky / women of the new society

释义

“半边天”本来是指天空的一部分,后来比喻现代妇女在社会中发挥的力量越来越大,能顶半边天,而以此代指新社会的女性。多用来强调或称赞妇女作用大,也特指妇女或妻子。

"半边天(bànbiāntiān)" literally means half part of the sky, and later it refers to women of the new society who play more and more important role in social development and can thus "hold up half the sky". This expression is to praise women's contribution to society, or you can use it to replace the woman you want to mention in a sentence under certain context.
