    Possible questions.

    China recently reversed their one-child policy, but I read they’ve completely changed gears and are now strongly encouraging young women to get married, have lots of children, and stay inside the family sphere as opposed to career or civic engagement. Is that true?

    I’ve read there’s less than 5% women in Chinese government. Is that true, and how do you think that affects the #MeToo movement?

      Kat, these are very good questions. I sadly already interviewed an activist, Li Tingting yesterday morning. If I have a chance to speak with her again, I will ask your questions.

      Hi Kat, as a girl who lived in Mainland for 22 years I could confirm what you said– Yes the policy changed in that raising multiple children is now encouraged. Luckily it’s not mandatory yet.

      Re staying inside and being a house wife, I don’t think that’s true as female liberation becomes an inevitable trend. But it’s obvious the commitment to raising more babies makes it harder for females to be more successful in career.

      Interesting figure of 5%, not able to validate this. But don’t feel it would effect “MeToo at all–Female officers need to endorse male-centric culture to climb the ladder. So no way they stand for the “MeToo”.
