Controversial post of Chinese Communist Youth League

The youth wing was fiercely opposed to publicity of various historical events and questioning the photo choices and the tweet was labeled ‘radical feminist’. At the same time, the public has reacted negatively to the claims and controversial posts made by the Chinese Communist Youth League. Such was the public outrage over the post that the Chinese Communist Youth League removed the comments on their social media accounts after receiving more than 270,000 negative responses.
In contrast, problematic social media posts praised women’s contributions to major historical events. Inside Over reported, ‘In 2016, the People’s Liberation Army Daily, the Chinese military’s media publication, honored more than 2,000 female soldiers who fought in the Red Army. The Chinese media praised women for playing an important role in the Chinese central government in 2009. Just a week after the public relations catastrophe of the Chinese Communist Youth League, the official media outlet of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference Daily (CPPCC Daily), China’s official political advisory body, issued an even more controversial post.
