Leftover Women: The Resurgence of Gender Inequality in China

In the early years of the People’s Republic, the Communist Party sought to transform gender relations.

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.
