If there were a time machine, how wonderful it would be! By traveling in time, I can not only meet
If there were a time machine, how wonderful it would be! By traveling in time, I can not only meet many famous heroes but also experience the fatal historic event by personal. Among the Chinese history, there was only one woman who ruled the chinese dynasty. Her name is "Wu-Ce-Tian",the only queen in Chinese history, she`s definiately the most attractive person whom I wish to meet.
The sexal discrimination in China has passed generation by generation. No matter the family, the school, the whole society, even the kingdom regarded women as a tool for breeding. What women have to do is stay at home and give birth. Women are not allowed to participate in any kinds of social affairs, needless to say politics. Therefore, "Wu" is the first woman who could defeate all opponents and entered the necleur of the kingdom. Even now, we learn that it`s very difficult for a man to compete with others and get the leadership in a country, and so that I can imagine how bad the situations she might be and how smart she was. From the whole history in China, we`ve learned that "Wu" dynasty is the very fair and open dynasty. As a ruler, Wu did a lot of contributions. It`s not easy for a woman. That`s the reason I wish to meet her.
If I could go back to the "Wu" dynasty, I could meet her and ask her feelings of being a ruler and learned the wisdom from her.
