Leftover in China: The Women Shaping the World’s Next Superpower

Having spent 5 years in China, American journalist Roseann Lake decided to take a closer look at leftover women, or shèng nŭ, representing unmarried single women in their late 20s or 30s.

The term “leftover women” carries the stigma of being left behind and can bring immense pressure to unmarried single women from both their parents and from society.

Intrigued by this topic, Roseann took on in-depth research on the social-political and historical factors shaping the destinies of Chinese women, and coupled with her own experience of working and hanging out with these so called “Shengnv”, resulted in a book titled “Leftover in China: The Women Shaping the World's Next Superpower”.
