A feminist group based in Guangzhou, China staged an online protest against the sexual exploitation of women in the workplace, revealing a photograph with a message boldly written in red on a whiteboard behind them: “My vagina does not come free with my labor.” More words were written on the women’s thighs, reiterating: “Not freebies.”
The campaign was in response to a recent fatal rape case involving a 20-year-old woman at a state-owned company who was asked by her boss to a dinner. She was sexually assaulted by her boss’s friend and died as a result of her injuries.“Don’t ask your staff to provide part-time escort services.

Yes, it is, but after reading the article I see no mention of Half the Sky or Kristof and the women speaking are actually pretty supportive and nonjudgmental of sex workers, just saying that they ARENT, which is true, (and not saying that it’s ok to rape sex workers to be clear)
So what’s the kristof connection?
Oh god I’m stupid half the sky POSTED this.
Yeah kill kristof. Kill him and his whole hypocritical kind.
Ye Haiyan is a sex workers’ rights activist, which the Half the Sky blurb somehow fails to mention.
