The Wǒ Men Podcast is a discussion of life in China hosted by Yajun Zhang, Jingjing Zhang and Karoline Kan. Previous episodes of the Wǒ Men Podcast can be found here, and you can subscribe to Wǒ Men on iTunes here.

On the latest Wǒ Men Podcast, we’re joined by feminist activist Zhang Leilei, who has played an important role in numerous feminist campaigns in China, including raising awareness around sexual harassment and gender equality.

Zhang’s journey as an activist began when she was in university. Now aged 26, she has been a prominent figure in China’s rising feminist movement. One of the most influential campaigns she led was using her body as a moving advertisement on metro trains in Guangzhou, a city in southern China, after her requests for public educational posters on public transport were repeatedly rejected by the authorities.

She also took action after high profile allegations were made against JD.com’s Richard Liu.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to interview Zhang Leilei and share her stories with all of you.
