Chinese women

This is just a quick observation.

The Peninsula Daily News, August 10, 2005, relays a report from
The Independent that has the following item:

China faces an acute lack of women.

So serious is the dearth of females that it is estimated that by 2020, 40 million men will be forced to remain bachelors.

Last month it was announced that female astronauts are to be recruited for China's space program, in an effort to create positive female role models and reverse the traditional Chinese preference for
boys over girls.

So, there's a shortage of women, but they'll address this by sending the few they have into space? Think about it....
