Lü Pin is a prominent Chinese feminist activist and an emerging scholar specializing in Gender and Politics. Her journey in advocating for women's right began in the late 1990s. In 2009, she established Feminist Voices, a pioneering and largest new media platform dedicated to women's issues in China, which was banned in 2018. Since 2012, Lü Pin has been dedicated to empowering young feminists and supporting their activism throughout China. After relocating to the U.S. in 2015, she spearheaded the organizing of the diaspora Chinese feminist community. Presently, Lü Pin is pursuing her Ph.D. in Political Science at Rutgers University.
