For urban girls in China, the one child policy has done a lot to improve their position in society, as it means they no longer have to compete with brothers for resources (food, parental attention, education, etc) and because it gives them a chance to prove that they can be just as filial (often, even more so) than sons, thus making daughters more desirable.

However, for poor girls living in rural areas in China and neighbouring countries, the policy makes their lives more dangerous, as it does nothing to improve their educational opportunities which would help them improve their situation. Instead, it only increases their chances of being forced into marrying a Chinese man who cannot find a wife due to the shortage of women in China.
