Since the biocultural paradigm is used as such in Gold-dust Dynasty, women’s health and sickness are defined in a biocultural perspective. a woman’s health is considered as a reflection of her ability to adapt to the modern environment by behavioural means. a women’s sickness, correspondingly, is thought to be a failure to adapt to the modern environment. This paper makes a conclusion that the modern environment drives new women to keep healthy in order to work productively, either at home or at the work place. From a biocultural perspective, health is the essential measure of adaptation and evolution. Modern Chinese women, the mothers of the modern Chinese population, needed to devote more attention to their health for two reasons. Their health was crucial to the adaptation and evolution of the species in the transition from an agricultural society to an industrial society, and women’s health was crucial to their own adaptation and evolution in the specific environments they lived in. In Gold-dust Dynasty, women are encouraged to maintain health for both their families and themselves, and their thoughts and behaviors are divided to healthy and unhealthy, hygienic and unhygienic, prescribed and proscribed, and approved and disapproved, based on the measure of their health.
