    Leta Hong Fincher on the 10th Anniversary Edition of her book, Leftover Women

    Leta Hong Fincher on the 10th Anniversary Edition of her book, Leftover Women

    When Leta Hong Fincher’s book “Leftover Women” was first published ten years ago, it was considered a seminal work on Chinese feminism. The book outlines the structural discrimination, wholly reinforced by the government, used to demonize educated women in their late twenties and early thirties who remain unmarried. A decade later, and with Xi’s continual reinforcement of patriarchal ideals and traditional family structures, the book is more pertinent than ever. This week on the podcast,...

New, authentic voice in US-China relations

US-China relations, identity, and culture through the lens of millennial Chinese and Chinese Americans who are deeply connected to both countries. I lived in China for a year and saw firsthand such a vibrant country you don’t see in the mainstream news. As an Asian American millennial myself, I am deeply connected to both the US and my “motherland”. This podcast brings that deep, honest, and complex perspective the world really needs ❤️

Very interesting new podcast

I’m sure you ladies will face unending torrents of misogynistic abuse, and I’m sorry for that. Yet please do keep up the good work!
