One Child Nation

China's One Child Policy, the extreme population control measure that made it illegal for couples to have more than onechild, may have ended in 2015, but the process of dealing with the trauma of its brutal enforcement is only just beginning. The sweeping ONECHILDNATION explores the ripple effect of this devastating social experiment, uncovering one shocking human rights violation after another - from abandoned newborns, to forced sterilizations and abortions, and government abductions. Wang digs fearlessly into her own personal life, weaving her experience as a new mother and the firsthand accounts of her family members into archival propaganda material and testimony from victims and perpetrators alike, yielding a revelatory and essential record of this chilling, unprecedented moment in human civilization.
