That’s Zhou Xiaoxuan who is taking a powerful TV host Zhu Jin to court for sexual harassment in a landmark case. The charge: he forcibly groped and kissed her when she was an intern on his celebrity chat show.

And her cause has drawn determined supporters despite the authorities efforts to drive them away.
