There is an official concept in nowadays Chinese society, that the women are unmarried over a crtain age are called ‘left-over women’. This concept is not narrowly or necessarily concerned by those who are (as such if categorized by its official), and it could also be considered relevantly and interested by those who are not currently aging over the age line that the concept encapsulates. Based on such background, it might not be surprising that Chinese young women have creative ideas on this concept, and what this research aims to study is exactly how do abroad Chinese female students view “being a ‘left-over’ women in contemporary Chinese society. In order to do this research, I’m going to invite Chinese female postgraduate/PhD students studying at UOY to take part in the interview. As for the type of language we are going to use in the interview, you can choose either English or Chinese. And during the interview, you don’t have to answer all questions if you don’t feel comfortable to do so, and also you can withdraw from the study any time during the interview and for up to 2 weeks after interview without giving a reason. If you have interests to take part in this interesting study, feel free to contact me! I will be very appreciated of your help! You can just email me back :, and if you prefer getting in touch further by we-chat, absolutely fine! We will do so later then, for discussing the place and time of our interview meeting, of course also the more things you want to make sure before u surely decide to participate. Thanks a lot!!!
