'Scattered with inspiring life-stories of courageous women.' The Guardian In the early years of the People's Republic, the Communist Party sought to transform gender relations. Yet those gains have been steadily eroded in China's post-socialist era. Contrary to the image presented by China's media, women in China have experienced a dramatic rollback of rights and gains relative to men. In Leftover Women, Leta Hong Fincher exposes shocking levels of structural discrimination against women, and the broader damage this has caused to China's economy, politics, and development.
Leta Hong Fincher is an award-winning former journalist who has been published in a number of magazines and newspapers, including the New York Times.
