In the pre-Qin period, a dayspring of Chinese historical civilization, Many elements of culture and civilization had been occurred from nothing to being, from small to big, from imperceptibility to intricacy, from original to mature. Because of it, we called the culture of the pre-Qin preiod as "headstream or vivid water". As a result of human being’s civilization and a basic mode of division of man and woman, gender roles was appeared in this times too. Along with a process of Xia, Shang and Zhou, it had been befeit from many kinds of factors,and finalized the design day after day. This process, lay across the whole period of the pre-Qin,and left over clear impressions and tracks. The aim of this paper is to explore the footmark of gender roles and understand the reason and result,source,development, transformation and perfection. Thereafter, we can watch and have a restricted view of the history and praxis of Chinese traditional gender roles, and offer a historical resource and background material to turn the theory of gender roles (gender) into a Chinese theory.For the sake of its aim, this paper select a traditional basic method which is used by many scholars who handled the theroy of modern sociology to unscramble and comprehend the ancient Chinese history. In an other words, we introduce this theory into a study of the pre-Qin period after we have commanded the theory of gender roles(gender).In frondose study course,we also adopt a method that we analyse the whole pre-Qin history from a fore-and-aft history spacetime.

The prevalence of procreate worship make out that the distinction between man and woman in that times was the result of the sex roles difference.Meanwhile many differences between man and woman of burial style, burial custom,burial articles show that it had a transition from the sex roles difference to the gender roles distinction.
