Jing and her husband have owned Crystal Cleaners and Laundromat on East 20th Street for eight years. “Because I am a woman I am very luck to have babies. I have two happy and smart daughters,” said Jing. “I think maybe in the work world and at school it may be easier to be a woman, but at home it is harder. We have to take care of the home, the food, the children,” she said. For Jing it doesn’t matter that she didn’t have any sons. “In Chinese culture having boys is more celebrated. I am happy that I have two girls but maybe for my family, they would have been happier if I had a son,” she said.
