Tough Girl (nǚ hàn zi以牙还牙

Hànzi ‘man’ is an address term in ancient times for men of Han ethnicity in northern China, but it now refers to men in general. However, the popular expression nǚ hàn zi ‘tough girl’ mostly refers to girls who are feminine in appearance but are of a manly disposition. Independent and competent, they can adeptly handle tasks traditionally done by men, such as changing light bulbs, replacing leaking pipes and fixing computers, etc. Nǚ hàn zi are able to shoulder more pressure than traditional women as they are more decisive and cool-headed in life and work.
