Daughters200Some 200 million farmers have left behind their families and fields to forge a living in China’s booming cities. The phenomenon has been described as the biggest internal migration in the history of the world.

Wu Dexiu is one of these . She and her husband, Tang Qiqing, left their village in Anhui province nine years ago to make money in Shanghai. Their two daughters stayed behind and live with their grandparents.
