Deng Yingchao


Deng Yingchao (邓颖超) (February 4, 1904 - July 11, 1992), was the Chairwoman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference from 1983 to 1988 and a member of the Communist Party of China.

With ancestry in Guangshan County (光山縣), Henan, she was born Deng Wenshu (邓文淑) in Nanning (南寧), Guangxi. Growing up in the poverty-stricken family, her father died when she was at a young age and her single mother taught and practiced medicine. Deng participated as a team leader in the May Fourth Movement, where she met Zhou Enlai. They married on August 8, 1925 in Tianjin.

Deng and Zhou had no children of their own. However, they adopted several orphans of "revolutionary martyrs", including Li Peng, later a Premier of the People's Republic of China. She was instrumental in the abolition of foot binding imposed on women.

She died in Beijing of illness at the age of 88.

There is a memorial hall dedicated to her and her husband in Tianjin (天津周恩来邓颖超纪念馆).

Sometimes considered one of the Eight Immortals of Communist China, Deng Yingchao is not related to Deng Xiaoping (who is from Sichuan).
