Join Beijing-based writer Lijia Zhang, whose new novel, Lotus, is inspired by China's underground sex industry. Moderated by journalist Ian Johnson, Zhang will talk about how she gained insights into the trade, with its often-brutal treatment of “working girls”; the deeply-flawed legal system (known as “Custody and Education”) tasked with managing an essentially social problem; and the broad social issues that have led not only to the spectacular rise of China’s sex industry, but also growing a gender inequality in the reform era.
