The #MeToo movement makes a comeback in China but faces hurdles
#MeToo movement has found it hard to gain momentum amid censorship
The #MeToo movement has made a comeback in China, months after the first wave brought down a university professor in January.
Later in the week, an anonymous letter accused noted media figure Zhang Wen of rape, and six others came out saying that they had also been harrassed by Zhang, including well-known writers Jiang Fangzhou and Yi Xiaohe.
On Thursday morning, the MeToo topic page on Weibo had over 30 million views and over 17,000 posts. “Me too” was one of the most searched keywords on the site and four of the ten top searches were related to the movement.
