China’s #MeToo Victims Face Abuse Payback for Going Public


In the most recent example, a woman was fired by Alibaba after going public with an accusation of sexual assault.

She went into the busy cafeteria at the Chinese e-commerce giant’s headquarters and screamed out her plight.

Now she’s facing online harassment, accusations of lying from the wives of the two men she accused, and a defamation lawsuit from an Alibaba vice president who was forced to resign. And, she revealed recently, the company fired her.

Women in China often face such troubles if they choose to speak publicly about sexual assault.
