The Master Class of Leftover Women

  • Katrien Jacobs


The era of neoliberal reform in China and postcolonial citizen movements in Hong Kong have allowed women to pursue erotic pleasures and sexually sophisticated lifestyles. At the same time, as will be shown in this chapter, there is increasing pressure from governments and relationship entrepreneurs to travel back in time to an ethos of conservative family planning, which in mainland China has coincided with a call for loyalty to the communist party-state. This rhetoric challenges women’s heterogeneous and media-inundated worldviews described in this book, which will be further examined through personal testimonies and an analysis of mature-aged sexuality in movies, artworks, websites, and porn industries.
