In English


The Women's Federation in China have defined "leftover" women as "unmarried women over the age of 27." Despite intentions to transform gender relations, and contrary to many claims made in the media, women in China have experienced a dramatic rollback of rights and gains relative to men.  In leftover Women, Hong Fincher lays out the structural discrimination against women and speaks to broader problems with China's economy, politics, and development.  Moderated by Linda Kennedy.
