FM3 left women and blind date

In week 3 I did some research about left women , and behind that part, leftwomen also links to Chinese reality Tv show “If you are the one.” and blind date.

What is left women?

Over 27? Unmarried? Female? In China, you could be labeled a “leftover woman” by the state 

(BBC news,2013)

Recommended by the tutor ,I have read some part of this book.

Leftover Women

The Resurgence of Gender Inequality in China

Leta Hong Fincher

———————————–

This book was said a current situation of women in nowadays china.

“In order to get married with a good man, I give up to find job after I graduated.”(P39)

while reading this kind of information, It make me a little bit strange and unhappy, and go more a deep to think leftwomen.

Meanwhile, the state-run media of china said a lot of  sentence like:

“These girls hope to further their education in order to increase their competitiveness. The tragedy is, they don’t realise that as women age, they are worth less and less. So by the time they get their MA or PhD, they are already old – like yellowed pearls.”

And some of the parents have the same views. So that is the reason why the blind date and the Chinese reality Tv show “If you are the one.” are so hot
