Asia's shortage of women: a major problem caused by sex selection

E-mail Print

Science writer Mara Hvistendahl in her new book "Unnatural Selection" examines how the trend toward choosing boys over girls through sex-selective abortions has spread through the developing world, particularly in Asia including China. Coining the term "Generation XY," Hvistendahl provides the grim results of sex selection: while the natural sex ratio at birth is 105 boys born for every 100 girls, in India the figure has risen to 112 boys and in China, 121.  A Jiangsu city, Lianyungang, has actually recorded 163 boys per 100 girls in 2007!!!

China is now the world’s second largest luxury goods consumer market. All it takes is one visit to Shanghai, and even an inexperienced visitor will feel that he or she has arrived at the epicenter of Chinese luxury purchasing. Yet, most China consumer observers agree that the majority of luxury consumption happens outside of the so-called tier-1 cities of Shanghai and Beijing. Hangzhou, a picturesque second-tier city in China’s Zhejiang province, there is evidence all around to prove this. Granted, Hangzhou is not your typical ‘second-tier city’, as it is a popular second home to China’s wealthy from across the country. However, the amount of wealth and the rate of urbanization here is truly astounding. A walk on the streets surrounding West Lake leads past luxury car dealerships for Porsche, Maserati, Ferrari and Aston Martin.

The Yangtze River, the longest in China, cuts China into two parts through its heart, the north and the south both geographically and culturally. This cut also divides Jiangsu province into two divisions, the Northern and Southern Jiangsu.

The southern part includes the major cities of Suzhou, Wuxi, Changzhou and Zhenjiang Cities, and most part of Nanjing. The northern part embodies the rest of the province, including Nantong, Taizhou, Yangzhou, Huaian, Suqian, Xuzhou and Lianyungang. The north occupies three fourths of the province's territory, but the south is the most developed area and the reachest region of China. Join us to discover differences of its great humanity, culture and time-honoured history.
