She Knows The Burden Of Still Being Single At Her Age



“She’s just average looking. Not too pretty. That’s why she’s left over.”

A woman could be a brilliant Ph.D. holder, a successful entrepreneur, an Olympic athlete. But in China, if a woman is not married by the age of 25, she’s considered lacking.


‘Leftover woman’ is an unflattering term used liberally, the idea of a single woman past her prime.

From the invasive questions from family to judgemental statements from the public, she has to deal with being considered a burden, an outsider, incomplete.


At the Marriage Market in Shanghai, parents go to advertise and find their unmarried children a match. These single women decided to show up and take over their destiny.

Watch how these ‘leftover women’ prove that they are true ‘power woman’. It’s inspiring.
