Lo.Re.Li stands for Look, Read, Listen. Loreli is an open platform that hosts the works of visual artists, sound artists, and writers in China.
Loreli operates on two principles: inclusivity of all aspiring writers and artists and recognition of quality
I began contributing to Loreli in September 2015, and they’ve since published an interview with me about my writing, feminism and China. Here’s a little look at my work on Loreli:
[excerpt] I use the phrase global feminism because disconnects between western feminist strongholds and developing world feminism can often be misconstrued. There is no reason a western feminist ‘we’ must set the agenda for a developing world feminist ‘them’. Chinese activists are navigating the way toward gender equality using a contemporary Chinese feminism, on their own terms. Nonetheless, Chinese feminism still embodies the principles by which feminists around the world are bound together.
[excerpt] How convenient that there were no other men present at our table when he sidled up to share his joke – that he didn’t run the risk of being called out by his own gender for being a creep. Had he imagined that only women would grant him a laugh? Was it painful to him that even a girl wouldn’t laugh at his joke?
