    Welcome Lu Pin!

    I am so impressed with your resume and intrigued by your work. I hope that you will share your articles with us through your PulseWire journal. We don't have many members from China, and Chinese women's issues are not currently represented here. I have a personal interest in women's issues in China, as I recently spent a year teaching English at a university in Kunming. I was amazed by the sharpness of my female students - most of who surpassed the work of my male students, but also well aware of the inequalities they faced after college and the social issues my friends dealt with daily - including the criticism for giving birth to a girl, rather than a boy, or the taboo of pre-marital sex and contraception (one friend of mine had 8 abortions by the age of 25). Not to mention the tight control of the media, and limited freedom of speech.

    I was not familiar with the networks you mention in your profile and am excited to learn more about those as well!

    I do hope that you will utilize your PulseWire journal to bring Chinese women's issues to the front of our community discussions!

    In friendship, Jade
