More than 20 women have come out with allegations against former bosses, acquaintances, and colleagues in the last week
A Chinese anti-discrimination campaigner, an environmentalist, three journalists, an academic, two badminton coaches, and one of China’s most watched television hosts. These are some of the men who have been accused of sexual misconduct in the last week, in an avalanche of cases that signal China’s #MeToo moment is gaining momentum even as authorities try to suppress it.
“There is no industry where this isn’t happening. These are not isolated cases,” says Yi Xiaohe, a Shanghai-based producer who has accused a well-known journalist and commentator of sexually harassing her in 2011.
