A fascinating and deeply moving article by Xinran appears in today's Guardian.

Xuē Xīnrán (薛欣然) is a British-Chinese journalist and broadcaster, born in Beijing in 1958.

Her best known work to date is perhaps The Good Women of China (中国的好女人们), which is a collection of true stories about the lives of Chinese women, gathered mainly from her time as the host of a radio show in China called 'Words on the Night Breeze'.

Her blog (in English) also makes interesting reading, and this piece in The Independent is also of interest.

If you want to read about her in Chinese, Radio Netherlands has this brief interview. A longer one can be found here.
