Join National Committee Senior Director for Education Programs Margot Landman as she interviews Leta Hong Fincher, a former journalist who just completed her doctorate in sociology at Tsinghua University in Beijing, about her book, 'Leftover' Women: The Resurgence of Gender Inequality in China.  Dr. Hong Fincher reflects on the campaign in place since 2007 to persuade young urban, educated Chinese women to marry by the age of 25 - or 27 or 30 at the latest - or risk being "leftover," and thus incapable of finding a suitable - or any - husband.
