  • China's #MeToo movement changed its name to "Rice Bunny" avoid censorship.
  • The new name comes from the words for rice and bunny, mi tu (米兔).
  • The change circumvents China's strict censorship laws, which have specifically targeted feminist movements in recent years.


China's #MeToo movement recently changed its name to evade internet censorship.

A Weibo discussion page for the movement which has received over 2.2 million views features the hashtag #ricebunny and icons of a rabbit and bowl of rice, which represent women's fight against sexual misconduct in China.
