Dear unhappy women in China

We got new bookshelves and moved our books around and it was very noticable how many books I have on the topic of women's suffering in China.

In ancient times, during the cultural revolution, in exile in America, now - in rural China. There's so much pain and misery! I don't know how to help! Tears, pearls, concubines, eunuchs, unwanted girl babies, pock marks, lily feets, litters (you call them jiao, no?), rice, moons, hunger, rape and disease.

The agony!
