Shanghai. Shanghai appeared in the Chinese comic strip “Weilai de Shanghai fengguang de kuangce” (Shidai Manhua, 1936).

In the future, Shanghai is ruled by an army of militant modern women. Thongs are the only permitted clothing, and pants are seen as “remnants of feudalism.” All jobs are done by women and men are forced to stay home and tend house. The fashion is for women to take several husbands at once, which leads to a proliferation of sexual diseases. Magazines on men are bestsellers, and pornography is sold on the street. The fad for women is to walk turtles and snakes in the streets.
