Wei Tingting, Wang Man and Zheng Churan were released today, Monday April 13, 2015, after spending one month in Chinese jail. They will remain under police surveillance for one year, and have limited freedom when it comes to travel and activities. Their release comes after the US and many other international powers urged China that their imprisonment was unjust.

The Women’s Rights Action Group, was arrested in March, prior to their plans for International Women’s Day on March 8th. John Kerry had this to say: “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,”  and that,  “We strongly support the efforts of these activists to make progress on these challenging issues, and we believe that Chinese authorities should also support them, not silence them.”
