Beijing court rules against woman in China’s #MeToo case

The Haidian People’s Court said in a judgment on Tuesday night that Zhou Xiaoxuan, who had become the face of the country’s #MeToo movement, had failed to meet the burden of proof by claiming that Zhu Jun, his superior on her workplace, had been sexually harassed. Zhou was a former intern for Chinese state television station CCTV and went public with the charges against Zhu, a prominent CCTV host, in 2018, as dozens of women began to talk about their past experiences of harassment or aggression. Since then, the movement has been largely shut down by authorities as activists found their online posts censored and came under pressure from authorities when they attempted to organize protests, but Zhou continued to speak out.
