These are awesome and bright Chinese female soldiers.
Hundreds of wars and uprisings have occurred in China during its more than 5,000 years of history. A dozen major dynasties and a similar number of minor dynasties ended through military actions. One major difference between China and other cultures is that war has never been glorified in China with heroic warriors like Caesar or Napoleon. However, similar to other societies, war in China has been primarily a masculine activity. Only occasionally have Chinese women been recorded as participants.1 However, women actually appear in Chinese military history as early as Sun Tzu's time (496-453 B.C.).
Today, Chinese women comprise about 4.5 percent of total military personnel in the PLA. Serving in the military enjoys high popularity among young Chinese women because it opens opportunities for education and training, better jobs in the future, possible residence in cities, and higher status in society.Nearly all women soldiers serve in traditional female roles or in military support positions and are concentrated in headquarters, hospitals, research institutions, and communication facilities. There they serve as medical workers, administrative personnel, communications specialists, logistical support staff, political and propaganda workers, scientific researchers, and technicians.

Female soldiers are few but they have a high social status.

Chairman Mao once wrote an poem for female militia:

飒爽英姿五尺枪,

曙光初照演兵场。

中华儿女多奇志,

不爱红装爱武装。
