The feminist five have been released
After being detained for more than a month, the five activists have yet to gain full freedom
After being arrested on the eve of International Women's Day for "assembling a crowd to disturb public order", Wei Tingting, Wu Rongrong, Li Tingting, Wang Man and Zheng Churan of the feminist five were released on Monday, according to The Guardian.
Liang Xiaojun, a lawyer who represents Wu, said, "Their release is not a victory – they are still on bail and still are suspects. Though released, the feminists' activities are still being restricted and they are yet to gain their complete freedom."
