China, who died at 90 years, the iconic tractor driver portrayed on postage stamps and yuan
BEIJING – the chinese will remember her forever as well: a little girl, driving a tractor, the sleeves of her blouse rolled up, the steering wheel, the balance in hand, the short hair in the wind and a smile confident on the lips. “No one knew how to bring good as me”, he liked to say Liang Jun. In 1948, while he was coming to the new communist China, was the first woman to follow a course to steer the agricultural machines. From the start, the Party chose as a symbol of a working model and a dozen years later, when Liang had been promoted to engineer, and Chairman Mao wanted it portrayed on the banknote, the most important, one by one yuan. Photographed driving his tractor, under the eyes and between the hands of the people. But not to be immortal: Liang Jun has gone, Monday, at 90 years of age, in his house in Harbin.

The reactions touched on the social, viral, with the image of the famous bank note red, tell the story of how the chinese are related to his image. A po’ because in the ’60s, the Country was still very poor, and the slip of paper from one yuan was a mirage of wealth. A little bit for the pioneering spirit, personal and national, that Liang embodied. Born in 1930 in a peasant family in the Heilongjiang province in the cold Northeast of the Country, on the border with Russia, and at 17 was accepted by the vocational school, agricultural, alone among 17 men. In 1949, after the proclamation of the people's Republic, he signed up immediately to the Communist Party, which sent her to Beijing to learn more about the machinery to cultivate the land, and aim it towards a role as a “researcher” that he held until 1990, before retiring. In the meantime, as other figures that are uplifting, has also been a part for four times of the national People's Assembly, the chinese version of Parliament.

The choice of his image in the years ’60, for the third edition of the banknotes of communist China, is in line with the campaign the Party had launched to mobilize women and involve them in the work force. The species in the country, and especially in the territories of less-developed as those of the “great wild North”. And it is perhaps this that today captures the imagination of citizens, even young people that the bill does not remember it, in a Country where the development of turbo-capitalism has increased the gap in economic opportunity between the sexes, rather than reduce it. Today, the chinese women in the propaganda of calling primarily to marry and have children, to combat the crisis of the birth rate which is throw off the demographics of china. A time asked them to drive the tractor.
