The Litch Line #7 – Recap of Ching Chong Chang: Careless Whispers

By  | 

This is our recap for season 3, episode 6 of Orange is the New Black: Ching Chong Chang. This episode is a scathing look at women’s bodies as commodities, about how women’s looks can determine their entire fate. The women working at Whispers grapple with the Western beauty standards, while the flashbacks show us the brutal trajectory of Chang’s life. Since we are roughly halfway through the season, we discuss the things we like and dislike about season 3 so far.


Other topics include:

  • The Tyranny of Red Velvet

  • Prison penpal pals

  • The introduction of Ruby Rose

  • The parallels between Chang and Piper
