    The literal translation of the title of the movie is: Woman of the Good Family.

    The phrase Women of the Good Family is used to emphasize that the women is not a hooker. Women are discriminated against in the traditional Confucian teaching already and there was no help in the old Chinese society to help those prostitutes who wanted to get out of the business. The naming of the title of this movie is excellent in that it reflects the cultural introspection that was the hidden theme of this movie.
