Radical Good is a typography solution that helps to promote gender equality in Chinese. In simplified Chinese, each character is made up of graphical components called radicals, which alone have their own meanings. However, a long history of patriarchy in Chinese society is reflected in how some radicals are combined to make characters, so I have chosen eight Chinese characters with single gender radicals that are commonly used in daily life, and redesigned their typeforms to allow the use of the female and male gender radicals interchangeably, in order to promote gender equality.
