4/30, New York: Women’s Rights Activism in China Today

On April 30, I’ll be the guest speaker at an after-work gathering of China Hands NYC, talking about the topic of women’s rights activism in China today. The jumping-off point for my talk will be, obviously, the five feminists who were detained in China just before International Women’s Day last month and finally released earlier this week. But I’ll also look back at the history of feminism in China over the past century or so and discuss how this recent incident fits into a broader story.

If you’d like to come (there’s a $10 charge, but that gets you beer, drinks, and snacks, PLUS me), RSVP using this link. Security procedures in New York are strict—if you’re not on the list, you won’t get in.
