The Puppet Show: Putian Child Bride

There is a group of women from Putian, China (a small city at South of China) who were abandoned by their parents about 40 years ago, because their parents preferred boys. Their parents sold them to families which had boys, and those boys’ families would raise the girls, but some of them treated those girls really bad, they were more like servants instead of daughters. When those girls grew up, their adopted parents would ask them to marry the the boys in the families, and they couldn't refuse. Those women are been treated as string puppets which have been controlled by those families and the society. This group of women are the epitome of a lot of women from some remote Chinese regions, they have no human right and been regarded as the machine of reproduction for their whole life.
