China: All the single men – 101 East

In China, women are in short supply. Thanks to an ancestral preference for boys, and the implementation of the one-child policy, there are now millions more men than women.

It’s predicted that one in five single men will never find a woman to marry. This striking gender imbalance is causing not just personal devastation but a potential national crisis.

To avoid becoming a ‘bare branch’, many single men are resorting to extreme methods to find a bride – kidnapping or buying women from overseas. Anything to help them fulfil their responsibility to secure the future of their family.
