I am a second-year PhD student in the Department of Political Science at Rutgers University, where I major in Women and Politics and minor in Comparative Politics. My research interests include Chinese feminist movements and authoritarian politics. My second-year paper examines the new escalation of authoritarian repressive strategies as exemplified by the Chinese feminist movement's encounter. I earned my M.A. in Gender Studies from the University at Albany, SUNY, prior to coming to Rutgers. Outside of academia, as an organizer, independent writer, and public intellectual, I have worked for women's rights since the 1990s. I am also a frequent contributor to media outlets worldwide with commentary on Chinese women's rights.
