Kerry calls for immediate release of Chinese feminists

US Secretary of State John Kerry urged Beijing to immediately release five feminists who were detained ahead of International Women's DayUS Secretary of State John Kerry urged Beijing on Friday to immediately release five feminists who were detained ahead of International Women’s Day. The arrests last month appeared to be an effort by China to head off public protest linked to the March 8 holiday. Li Tingting, a young activist known for staging demonstrations in men’s lavatories to call for an increase in the number of public toilets for women, was taken from her home in Beijing on March 7, according to her lawyer Yan Xin. “Each and every one of us has the right to speak out against sexual harassment and the many other injustices that millions of women and girls suffer around the world each and every day,” Kerry said in a statement.
