China’s #MeToo movement

The recent Kris Wu abuse case has brought the #MeToo movement to public attention in China, with the prominent Chinese-Canadian 30 year old singer currently in custody in Beijing, he stands accused of the date rape of a teenager in a possible string of sexual abuse cases. China’s business drinking culture has also come under fire recently as Alibaba sacked a manager and two senior employees, including a senior executive, resigned following allegations that the manager pressured a female Alibaba employee to drink excessively at a business trip before raping her. The two cases have shone a light on sexual assault in China, but this is not the first murmurs of #MeToo in the country, previous high-profile rape allegations have led to a significant backlash on social media. However online censorship has complicated the issue and it is unclear if the #MeToo movement has led to significant change in the country.
Can the latest iteration of the #MeToo movement lead to lasting change in China?
