Revisited: China’s feminist fightback

In this episode from August 2021, Jessie Lau talks about whether the #MeToo movement in China can prevail.

In China, many 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 opposition to their growing nationalist agenda.

In this revisited episode from August 2021, we speak to the reporter Jessie Lau who tells us about the women on the front line of China’s feminist fightback, and whether the #MeToo movement in China can prevail.
