A young woman lands a prestigious internship in a big company. Works with an entertainment icon, who then sexually assaults her. And she is forced to shut up about it.
Well, Zhou Xiaoxuan didn’t. The 25-year-old Chinese screenwriter has spoken out saying this is what happened to her at China’s state broadcaster CCTV.
She accused this man, iconic anchor Zhu Jun of sexual assault. Since her allegation last year, Zhou has been slapped with a lawsuit and has been targeted on social media.
But she’s also become a symbol for china’s fledgling #MeToo movement. Our correspondent Mathias Bölinger met Zhou Xiaoxuan in Beijing.

#MeToo in China. Very funny 🤣😂
Amuse yourself
Using her victimhood as a resource of her own power, in this case is for her own monetary gains for that which is the 'compensation' for sexual harassment if she do win at the court.
Hmmmm... anyone else wondering if did she 'bait' the man herself? It is a possibility, no?

Look at these sucker media trying so hard smear China! China has 80% self-made FEMALE billionares of the whole world! Chinese women have the highest working percentage in the world! All due to Communism!

I think #metoo may be the least of Chinese citizen's concerns. people arrested for singing the national anthem incorrectly, arrested for mentioning June 4th, arrested for sending picks of pooh bear........#metoo can stand for just about anything in China never mind sexual assault. At least Zhou Xiaoxuan isn't in jail........yet.

Good luck Zhou! I hope you whoop his butt in court. I hope the national conversation continues, and that you eventually don't have these feelings that need to be pent up inside.

China consumes half of the world's pork. And the country's growing middle class — bigger than the population of the United States — wants more meat. Nathan Halverson of The Center for Investigative Reporting looks at how China plans to meet that demand.
