  4. Madame Nhu was not the first woman the Americans called the Dragon Lady. The name seems to trace back to a fictional character from the 1930s comic strip Terry and the Pirates. That cartoon Dragon Lady was a sneaky seductress. She was made from fiercely sketched ink strokes that defined angular cheekbones and slanted eyes. She was interested in only money and power. From then on, any Asian woman who didn’t conform to the submissive, meek, and otherwise obliging feminine fantasy about the Orient was labeled a “dragon lady.” China’s last empress, Xixi, was one, as were Soong May-ling, who would become Madame Chiang Kai-shek, and Madame Mao. Hollywood’s first Asian American movie star, Anna May Wong, was cast as either a delicate flower in a demure supporting role or as a sly and deceitful dragon lady in movies like The Thief of Baghdad and Old San Francisco.
