Feedback on your article[edit]

Hi Kate, I really like your cutting edge article on "Chinese Dama". It is interesting to see that newspapers are directly quoting "Dama". My suggestions are as followers.

1. it would be interesting and vivid if you could include some images about "Dama" buying gold. the website you have cited may be a good source for the images: http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/business/2014-01/01/content_17208703.htm

2. I like the section "analysts' points of view". It would be great if you do not use numbers such as 1. 2. 3...to separate your paragraph as you are writing an "article". But it is clear while you are writing your draft now.

3. as "Chinese Dama" is a biased term referring to a certain group of women, it would be nice to explain more about this phenomenon and how it happens (i.e most of them stay at home and do not have a regular job. they spend their time chatting with others and etc.) other sources: http://english.cntv.cn/20140217/103572.shtml

Hi! I really enjoyed this article on the Chinese Dama, a phenomenon I was not previously familiar with. I think that you may wish to consider western perceptions of Chinese Dama's a little more greatly from other sources other than just the Wall Street Journal. This would provide a more holistic picture of how the Chinese Dama is perceived in the West. You may also want to draw attention to Chinese perceptions of Western media portraying China and what kind of conflict that has created. For example this article covers how Americans see China. http://globalpublicsquare.blogs.cnn.com/2012/09/18/how-americans-see-china/ or CNN controversies may be an useful place to look or link to for this type of information.

Hey Kate, this is a really interesting topic! great work! :D It seems like everyone already has made pretty good suggestions so I would only add a few more things. Although this is fairly new topic, similar concepts (of mid-age wealthy women controlling financial market) have been explored in the international investment industry for quite while. 'Similar' in terms of describing mid-age women with strong capital power influencing global markets. I was wondering if we could mention similar concepts such as Japanese Mrs. Watanabe who used to have a big influence on foreign exchange market. "Mrs. Watanabe" from WSJ Also I see the topic mainly related to the global gold market but their influence reached out to bit-coin and international real-estate market as well. I think it will be quite interesting if you can cover how they have become a driving force in various global markets. http://www.wantchinatimes.com/news-subclass-cnt.aspx?id=20140201000001&cid=1503

I feel like it would be great if you could explore how Chinese Dama is structured culturally as well. Here is an interesting article about it. http://www.sino-us.com/64/Dama-China-s-secret-weapon.html

Great topic! cheers,

Hi KateKou, good job on starting off your Wikipedia article. I did not know anything about this topic before reading your article, so thank you for the insight. I think it would be more presentable if you take out the numbered bullet listings in your article and made it more of a paragraph format, but I know this is still a work in progress and you’re probably just organizing your ideas. Definitely include some internal links later on too!

Here are some potential references:
