Battling censorship and stereotypes, Chinese women are organizing online to harness the momentum of the country's nascent #MeToo movement in a push for authorities and businesses to end sexual misconduct.

The latest wave of claims of sexual misconduct emerged last month after Lei Chuang, the founder of Yi You — a charity that fights discrimination against people with hepatitis B — confessed to a sexual assault and quit his position.

The claims have snowballed since then. At least 20 women have come forward to share allegations of sexual misconduct against other prominent individuals, from the charity sector to media and academia.
