Watch: Chinese LGBT and feminist activist discusses being arrested and detained

On a discussion on feminist and LGBT activism in China held at Asia Society in New York, Chinese activist Li Maizi describes how international feminists can help

Li Maizi joined fellow activist Di Wang and journalist Barbara Demick at a discussion panel on July 28.

Li Maizi was arrested in 2015 along with four fellow feminists for planning an anti-sexual harassment campaign, she was taken aback by the "wave" of support they received from the international community

"The international support was very important," she said. "I think we need to keep solidarity with other women's organizations."
