Abstract
Contemporary China has witnessed the transformation of Chinese feminism from state feminism to grassroot feminism. Weibo hashtag #DontYouBeAfraidYourSistersAreHere is a typical grassroot feminist movement in China which triggered by a sexual violence case "Bao Yuming Case" since April 2020. To carry forward such movement, Chinese cyberfeminists have employed localized tactics to build up online counterpublics and expand social influence while under the rules of Weibo algorithm and government censorship.
