A transformation is taking place in the countryside of China. As
the economically booming cities attract men away from their
villages, women are being left behind as the new backbone of the
rural workforce. Not only are they tilling rice paddy fields,
but working in the new rural industries, as factory hands. In
some areas, women are taking on 80% of farm work and are seen as
the biggest and cheapest labour pool in China.
