Report on sexual harassment in China: http://supchina.com/2017/10/16/sexual-harassment-china-different-u-s-chinas-latest-society-culture-news/

Even though the incidence of rape based on police records in China stood at 2.1 per 100,000 people from 2003 to 2012, “a large number of sexual abuses are not recorded.”

If a woman in China is being sexually harassed, she would not speak up or protest because it is considered as a shame in the society. Thus, report on sexual harassment is rare in China. But, the situation of women being assaulted is worse than in the U.S. Women have taken some actions in China, but not enough.
