The New Culture Movement (Xīn Wénhuà Yùndòng 新文化运动) originated at Peking University during the 1910s. The movement’s ideologies were reflected in the phrase Old China (Jiu Zhong Guo旧中国), referring to the rejection of traditional Chinese culture, especially orthodox Confucianism and conventional gender inequality, and the promoting of Western cultural modernity (particularly democracy and science).
