CCTV gives us an inside look at the lives of female bodyguards, who are preferred by China’s elite because they can double as nannies and secretaries, and often make way more money than their male counterparts.
This perhaps marks a small crack in China’s ever-thick glass ceiling. And this phenomenon is not just limited to China. In the UK, rockstars and royalty increasingly prefer female bodyguards because they’re less conspicuous when taking the celebs’ kids to school or appointments. Also, many celebs feel uncomfortable having a man in such close proximity with their children and wives.
