Leftover Women: The Resurgence of Gender Inequality in China

by Leta Hong Fincher
£9.99   paperback  Zed Books Ltd (2016)

Leftover Women: The Resurgence of Gender Inequality in China by Leta Hong Fincher 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.
