Summary

"The Joy Luck Club" by Amy Tan portrays four Chinese women who migrated from China to the United States, still filled with the pain of the past and traditional Chinese culture. The interlocked stories in the book follow the development of the influence of the women's experience on their respective daughters, who are born in the United States.

Due to some traumatic experiences, the mothers could not and cannot freely and independently live their lives, so in the United States, where equality between male and female can be found, they put all their hopes on their daughters, hoping that they can be crafted into bright persons in the future under their mothers’ nursing. The daughters are thus to shine and thrive in the booming country, rather unlike the ancient Chinese women, who must be subservient to men.
