Shirley MacLaine was invited by the Chinese government to bring a group of seven American women with her for a tour of the Chinese mainland. The women, who were of different races, ages, and economic levels, were accompanied by government guides and went to Beijing, Shanghai, Canton, and Hangchow. Highlights of their tour include seeing farms, homes, schools, day care centers, and a Caesarian childbirth using acupuncture for anesthesia.
