Corrupt wives put in the picture

There is a Chinese belief that "a successful man must have an understanding wife". This just might mean that "a corrupt man must have a supportive wife". Beijing government authorities have now taken, according to the Shanghai Daily, to investigating and prosecuting the wives of corrupt village officials. Not only that, these "understanding wives" are portrayed in an exhibition of photos highlighting the government's effort to fight graft.

Communication, propaganda and examples are always good ways to bring about cultural change. I wonder when the government will find positive and motivational ways to encourage change?
