Streicker Center: Women on the Move with Jean Kwok

In Jean Kwok’s new book, The Leftover Women, she takes us inside the collision between a rural Chinese mother desperate to find the daughter taken from her because she’d defied the Chinese One Child policy and a wealthy white American woman with a high-powered job, a beautiful home and an adopted Chinese daughter she adores.

Kowk joins us to discuss such clashes, writing while hopscotching across cultures, and, at a moment when the American Dream is being much maligned, how she feels about it.
