Overview

China's Communist regime has survived for over 70 years. During the presidency of Xi Jinping, gender equality in China dropped to an all-time low. On March 8, 2015, President Xi Jinping hosted an event on women's rights for the UN. On the same day, Chinese authorities arrested five young female activists distributing stickers against sexual harassment on public transport. They were interrogated, threatened, and detained for 37 days.

Leta Hong Fincher is a Chinese-American journalist, feminist author, and scholar. Her work was featured in The Economist, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal.

Betraying Big Brother is based on Hong Fincher's interviews with prominent Chinese feminists, activists, and human rights lawyers. From the women's liberation activists who took part in building the PRC to the grassroots efforts of today's feminists, the book tells the compelling tale of the Chinese feminist movement and its fight against an authoritarian regime.

"The feminist resistance may yet have the potential to become China's most transformative movement in the long run - provided that any social movement is allowed to exist."
