The US mainstream media covers world events from a lens that excludes the experience and perspectives of most of the world’s people. That’s especially true when it comes to China, where American militarism dominates the conversation. We rarely, if ever, have the chance to hear and appreciate the many different perspectives in China, especially from women and advocates for peace.
Disarming the discourse means elevating those voices. Join us on December 5 at 5pm PT/8pm ET as CODEPINK co-founder Jodie Evans hosts journalist Li Jingjing for a discussion on feminist issues affecting both China and the US. The conversation will also cover Jingjing’s observations from her time reporting on the Xi-Biden summit in San Francisco.
Li Jingjing has worked as a journalist in China for more than 10 years. During her career, she’s traveled extensively across China to cover poverty alleviation projects, focusing especially on the multiethnic communities of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and Tibet Autonomous Region. She's also researched and visited Belt and Road Initiative projects across multiple continents. She hosts Talk It Out with Li Jingjing, as well as the travel-focused JJ on the Road.
