Do Not Marry Before Age 30: Empowering Women


Joy Chen, the former deputy mayor of Los Angeles, is the author of Do Not Marry Before Age 30 – part memoir and part self-help guide – which debunks conventional wisdom that single women are “leftover” by their late 20s, and helps them unlock their potential and realize their dreams. The book is a bestseller in China, where it has won Chen a massive following. In 2012, the All-China Women’s Federation named Chen “Woman of the Year.” She currently has a movie in development with Wanda Media, and one with Alibaba Pictures.
