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'.
