China’s history shows a pattern of preference for sons over daughters. Chinese language and policies show evidence of this bias. This penchant has created a sizable gender disparity within China’s population. The implementation of the One-Child Policy only exacerbated the gap between males and females. China’s age-old preference for sons has negatively impacted modern-day China. The gender disparity generated a “demand” for women, which has been answered by sex trafficking women in China to be sold as brides and sex workers.
