The script only for woman

Chinese women Tszyanyun County has long enjoyed the script, hidden from men

Since ancient times, Chinese women in living in the county Tszyanyun Hunan province, there was a special system of writing called Nyuy-shu, carefully concealed from men. Since it was officially forbidden for women to learn reading and writing, they devised a set of characters corresponding to the individual syllables, and this knowledge is passed on to girls only from the mother or sisters. 

To cryptography have not found a man signs nyuy-shu, often intertwined in ornament - their form was optimal for the embroidery on the fabric.
