“Leftover Woman”

Single women in China are courageously standing up against the pressure of being labelled “Sheng Nu”, or “leftover woman”. This hit in the heart.

  1. Whoa did not expect that to be a tear jerker.

  2. Wow. Just wow. Good for them, standing up to societal pressures. And yes, for their parents for embracing the future. *I’m not crying, you are!* ?

  3. In Poland unmarried women in certain age were called “stara panna” which means old bachelorette. Obviously it was pejorative. Luckily we don’t use this phase anymore (or very rarely.. and it’s used mainly by older people).
