  3. 同志 Culture Notes • In Taiwan and oversea Chinese communities, the titles Xīansheng, Tàtai, Xǐaojie and Nǚshì are more or less the equivalents of Mr., Mrs., Miss and Ms. • In China, since the early 19th century, they began the “equalitarian” movement and the word “Tóngzhì” is used. (Tongzhì meaning “Comrade”) • An exception was often made, however, in dealing with foreigners. • With the advent of liberalization and globalization in the PRC, Xīansheng, Tàitai, Xǐaojie, and Nǚshì are reappearing, more commonly in the large metropolises. Tóngzhì on the other hand, while used, is growing less popular.
