International Women’s Day events in pictures:

Here are photos from this weekend at BLF 2014, where we marked International Women’s Day with a series of events looking at women’s lives in China and around the world. On Sunday night at 5 pm Journalist Leta Hong Fincher gave a powerful talk about gender inequality in China and exposed some interesting connections between real estate, marriage law, eugenics and media propaganda. At 7.30 local writer Ning Yuan joined India writer Anjum Hasan and Janette Jenkins from the UK to compare insights into gender roles and how feminism is defined in their respective countries.
