China’s feminist fightback

Reporter Jesse Lau talks about the women on the front line of China’s feminist fightback and we ask whether the Me Too movement in China can prevail. 

 

In China, women have had enough. There’s a feminist awakening as groups challenge laws and customs, which they believe are entrenched in sexist ideas.

But as the movement grows, the ruling Communist Party wants to shut it down, labelling these liberal attitudes as contrary to their growing nationalist agenda.

Today, we speak to the reporter, Jessie Lau, who tells us about the women on the front line of China’s feminist fightback and we ask whether the Me Too movement in China can prevail.
