Random information on the term “Secret society”:

The Red Lanterns were the women’s fighting groups organized by village women who were not allowed to join the men’s groups during the Boxer Uprising of 1900. Villagers said these women had supernatural powers and were called upon to perform tasks which the male Boxers could not.

Unlike the Taiping rebels but like many Chinese folk sects such as the White Lotus Sect, Boxer ideology forbade contact with women. Boxer discipline in its strictest form did not allow sexual contact with or even looking at a woman for fear that the female’s polluting yin would destroy the invulnerability ritual.

Nevertheless, women organized parallel units: The Red Lanterns (Hongdeng zhao, i.e. “Red Lanterns Shining”), for younger women, “Blue Lanterns” (Landeng zhao) for middle-aged women, and Black Lanterns (Heideng zhao) for elderly women. The Red Lanterns ranged in age from twelve to eighteen, did not set their hair in the traditional way and did not bind their feet. They wore red coats and trousers, red hats, and red shoes, and each carried a red lantern. They were convinced that they could leap up to heaven when they waved their red fans.

Random information on the term “MAFIA”:

The American Mafia (commonly referred to as the Mafia or the Mob, though “the Mob” can refer to other organized crime groups or organized crime in general) or Italian-American Mafia is a highly organized Italian-American criminal society. The organization is often referred to by members as Cosa Nostra (Italian pronunciation: [ˈkɔːsa ˈnɔstra, ˈkɔːza -], our thing) and by the government as La Cosa Nostra (LCN). The organization’s name is derived from the original Mafia or Cosa nostra, the Sicilian Mafia, and it originally emerged as an offshoot of the Sicilian Mafia; however, the organization eventually encompassed or absorbed other Italian-American gangsters and Italian-American crime groups (such as the American Camorra) living in the United States and Canada that are not of Sicilian origin. It is often colloquially referred to as the Italian Mafia or Italian Mob, though these terms may also apply to the separate yet related Sicilian Mafia or other organized crime groups in Italy.
