"Woman will go through the transition, it's a natural transition, but the effects and the symptoms will vary from woman to woman. And HRT, if a woman decides that her symptoms are overriding everything and she wants to take it, then that should be an available choice to her. For some women who can't take estrogen and progesterone, there are alternatives as well. So if you're having flushes, there's clonidine that's gabapentin. I sometimes prescribe antidepressants, such as SSRIs. They're also lifestyle. So you're going to acupuncture brilliant amount of evidence based medicine around that in order to help relieve some of the symptoms. And maybe boxing cape, I don't think, yeah. And like I said, there's so much that we can talk about. And especially all the mental aspects of it as well. You mentioned that one in four shocking figure women that talked to you as suicidal. But I'm sure we will be. We definitely will be coming back to this. Kate, please come and talk to us again and more in depth and nigger. Thank you very much for both of you speaking to me this morning. Lots of you getting through on the text. I'm sorry if I don't get to your text today. There's so many, but I will read out as many as I can. Someone says here, menopause is a natural part of life. You will probably have an easier ride if you're fit, healthy and active. But now, what's it like being a woman in China today? The country has been rocked by several high profile me too cases. The sewing of the birth rate in the country has led to a push to get more women to have children and earlier this month, the communist youth league of China, an official government organization published an article about young people who are making positive contributions to modern China and only highlighted men. When women spoke out about this, they were called extreme feminists and malignant tumors of our society by the youth organization. To give us an insight into all of this, Kerry Allen is joining me who keeps a close eye on the Chinese media for the BBC and she joins us now very good morning Kerry. So tell us about this latest development. Why were women purposefully left off this list? What's happening? I don't know that they were purposely left off, but the communist youth league is a youth movement that's run by the government. They have what they did was they posted a social media post back in early April that showed 6 images about what they said were the most famous moments in history under the Communist Party. So they included previous army, it seems in the army. They also included floods. They also looked at COVID-19 and all of these pictures showed heroic men..
"communist youth league" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence
"The same red and blue face masks as we go in. We've been in various different security checks and COVID tests for several hours already. And I think that reflects the extraordinary high stakes. This is an Olympics taking place in the middle of a pandemic in a country which has decided to try and crush COVID completely in the midst of that pandemic, they've admitted about 30,000 foreigners into China for the Olympics. And so if you add together China's obsession with order it at the best of times, you end up with this extraordinary mixture of police and medical checks and security and kerfuffle. And so how has it been to get this far? So this is very much an invitation only public event. So about a couple of weeks ago, they announced that the general public would not be coming on a ticket basis and that state work units would be allocating tickets for sporting events, but also for the big ceremonies like this. So the foreign ministry has an allocation of tickets, which they've given out to foreign journalists based in Beijing, not all. And it was interesting, we were just in a kind of several hours of waiting around changing buses. And I was talking to some of the other Chinese spectators who had been invited to the opening ceremony. There's a lot of universities who have been allowed to send a hundred or so students each. I talked to them, they'd known for ages that they were coming and they're all members of the ones that I spoke to at least when the communist youth league. But then I spoke to another woman who was a teacher trainer from a teaching training institution, and she told me that she had only known for a couple of weeks that she was coming to the opening ceremony. So you can see that there's been a bit of a scramble to assemble a reliable well behaved and have you deserving crowd to come to this event? And aside from the ones who have been lucky enough to be invited. What's the mood more generally in Beijing about the games? I mean, you know, the usual propaganda machine is now clicking into gear, but I've been in China for other very big events and this is not being given the full welly to use the technical term. And I think that that reflects a couple of things. One is that winter sports are just not an enormous thing. I think there is a basic tension about the fact that the Chinese public is very, very focused on the idea that the outside world is a source of infection and disease and chaos and that as a result, the idea of allowing all these foreigners into the country does make them a bit anxious. And so I think that is inevitably a slight dampener. And what about the games on the international stage? This should be an event for a country to shine. What does that look like this year? I think there's a real sour edge to it, but it's not universal. I think what that tells you is that if you look at the list of countries that are doing some form of diplomatic boycotts, the most obvious ones are America and their closest Anglo Saxon allies and that's not lost on Chinese officials and diplomats. You make the point that the French on boycotting the Germans aren't by causing this seems to be about the Anglo Saxon world. These arrogant English speaking countries that in China is telling a nostalgic for the days when white men who spoke English ran the world and they don't like having a rising China from a different civilization at the top table. And so I think they're very keen to play up the fact that you have dozens of foreign leaders mostly. It has to be said from non democratic countries, a lot of Central Asian leaders, some other Asian leaders, Vladimir Putin is I think the guest of honor, you would say, who also had a summit today with Xi Jinping. And so if you want to talk about the fact that this is a very divided world and one of the ways in which this world is dividing is in views of China and whether China is a normal country whose big public celebrations are the kind of things you would want to send your leaders to celebrate this Olympics is an absolutely classic example. It's just another milestone on that long journey towards the division of the world into camps who take a very different view of China's rise. Do you think there are any risks for Xi Jinping and the party machinery here that something might make it come unstuck? Their attention to detail is always impressive, but they're clearly very, very anxious for everything to look. These elements, I think part of that stage management has a darker edge to it, which is should an athlete get very angry about COVID controls because there is this daily testing going on of the athletes who are inside the closed quarantine bubble. And if they test positive for any reason after arriving, then they're isolated and in some cases might not get to compete. So I think there is you can imagine scenarios in which athletes end up getting very upset with the strictness of the COVID controls here. And if that goes out on social media, I think that could be quite an issue. And certainly, the extreme strictness of these controls that I've been going through. I've had four COVID tests where I will have had four COVID tests by the time I'm done with this opening ceremony in the space of a few days. That is because the greatest risk I think for Xi Jinping would be after two years of extraordinary sacrifice to achieve a zero COVID situation in China. If the Olympics was the thing that brought in a big wave of COVID into China, that would clearly be an own goal for the party. But beyond controlling COVID, though, there is one thing that may be out of the party's control, and that is political dissent. The Olympic Games have been a place for people to make statements. Do you think we'll see any? It's very hard to know whether an individual athlete may choose to say something about what's happening in Xinjiang or in Tibet. It's not out of ban. You know, there have been previous famously black powers of salutes at Olympics years and years ago. China is a pretty intimidating place if you're planning a place called protest it has to be said and I think that national teams have been telling their athletes really this is not the country to try and play the hero and make a political protest. We've seen senior Chinese public security officials say that anyone who breaks Chinese law will be subject to certain punishments. They have lifted the usual Internet censorship for those athletes who are inside the closed loop bubbles. So they will be able to use social media and Google and SnapChat and Instagram in ways that are not possible outside in the rest of China. I was talking some diplomats here about whether they thought their countries would have athletes who had stage political protests. One of the things they said is that sport is a big business now. And if you're a young athlete who wants to make a career of this, you know you're going to be damaging your career fairly severely if you use this place to make a process. So it's very hard to know. But it seems unlikely given just how big a deal it is for China's leadership that all of this goes smoothly. So every big public event that is on the global stage is a big deal for the Chinese Communist Party. You remember, this is a party that stakes its legitimacy on its successful performance. It doesn't win elections. The Communist Party doesn't have opponents who it can beat in order to gain a mandate. It is a country entirely based around the claim that its way of governing may be iron fisted, but is successful and orderly and efficient. So any big public event like the Olympics is a test of that performance legitimacy. But this year is particularly crucial. Why? Because China feels it's locked in a competition with the west that it is winning. The west has done so badly at managing COVID that this is proof that China's iron 51 party system is just superior and keeps people safe in a way that is morally superior to decadent dysfunctional western democracy, but also the end of 2022, there's going to be a very important once every 5 years partly Congress, which all people expect Xi Jinping the current leader to seek a third term as China's supreme leader, which is unprecedented. And so he needs more than ever a completely orderly, completely successful 2022, and this ceremony at the beginning of February is the first bookend of a year that in his dreams ends with the second bookend of his elevation to a level of power and undisputed authority, not seen since the days of chairman Mao. David, thank you very much for joining us and enjoy the ceremony. Thank you..

"And can't guarantee she'll find a partner in time She is now suing the Beijing hospital which ultimately refused to allow shoe to freeze her eggs The hospital cited their rules which only allow married women to do so But no law in China actually mandates this Yet she says cities still have rules which prevent unmarried women like her from accessing reproductive services There are rules which they can productive persistent services are only available to married couples and why they don't mention egg freezing specifically it's considered such a service As a legal expert who specializes in gender discrimination cases She testified in favor of shoe at her court hearing earlier this year She points out unmarried men have no problem freezing their sperm in China And usually it comes down to conservative values And unmarried women who have children are usually found to have violated the catch all legal rule of keeping up public order and morality Even though the one child policy has gone most hospitals only offer reproductive services to women who can prove they're married By requiring them to bring their marriage licenses to appointments This is a problem that's likely to grow because 44% of young Chinese urban women say they do not want to get married A quarter of men say the same according to a survey by the Chinese communist youth league and divorce rates are rising And yet at the same time China wants its younger citizens to have more children Years are the one child policy depleted the country's birth rate and China's pool of able bodied workers is shrinking while that of its senior generation is growing as a result Here's Liu the legal expert again China's birth rate of 1.3 children per woman is already lower than the international average Our population is decreasing I traveled to China's south and see empty factory lines because there aren't enough workers to hire Unmarried people are not waiting around for social mores to catch up to China's three child policy In fact more and more unmarried women and men have been taking matters into their own hands One of them is fent a 33 year old lesbian who can not get married because China ban same sex unions So fen bought sperm from an American donor and now has twin toddlers Fences mothers like her have to use a private hospital in China for IVF That would show me public hospitals won't take a case like mine even the sperm has to come from a private donor through an unregistered sperm bank We're not using fenn's full name because having a child this way lies in a legal gray area And recently China has been quietly cracking down on such LGBTQ reproductive services When it came time to register the bursts of her children fenn simply left the father's name blank I'm in total panic when people ask me who the father of my children was Sometimes I don't know how to respond China has made some improvements for unmarried mothers It used to be nearly impossible to register their children for the Chinese equivalent of a social security number but now just one parent can apply for this identification document which is key to accessing education and social benefits Now the process is similar for all mothers the only difference is unmarried mothers have to pay the cost of birth Married mothers have it covered by state insurance This mother lives in Shenzhen and she wants to remain anonymous because she fear social stigma for having a child outside of marriage She says she was able to easily get her child a birth certificate but with caveats The local office notified me that because my child is born outside of the national birth planning rules my child can not go abroad before they turn 18 If my child wants to become a public servant they need to track down the father's information too The hope is that in spite of all these hurdles that non traditional families face China's new three child policy will liberalize reproductive restrictions One person betting on this is Shaw the founder of pomp Baba or fat daddy a Chinese surrogacy and IVF agency that caters to LGBTQ couples and unmarried parrots There's a look at Russia another socially conservative country They legalized surrogacy around when their birth rate was plummeting A similar drop in China might lead to relaxation of reproduction rules We're using only Shaw's first name because surrogacy is illegal in China And despite the three child policy open discussion about same sex parents and surrogacy still gets deleted on Chinese social media for being politically sensitive Our advertising

"Legislation to stop the use of labor camps political labor camps. How much of the problem is really big business. Yeah i think that when it comes to big business the framing of it. It's not a uniquely chinese communist party issue. i think it's it's the issue that one. These firms started outsourcing their labor their manufacturing capabilities. I think their allegiance followed. And you know a lot of these these big corporations. They want the open borders. They want the cheap labor. But i've always said that you know. These open borders work both ways in the sense that they want cheap labor and and they want to send jobs out. They want to send our manufacturing capabilities outwards. And and i think it's you know you don't even have to kind of speculator or make guesses as to where their their allegiances and ideologies lie. Charlie munger who is big guy in finance but guy business He said quote china to the right thing and response to how the chinese government treated. Jack ma blue. Jack ma is is. No hero is still a member of the chinese communist party but as someone who who the chinese government kind of tried to just person and do away with because he wanted to maybe get a little creative In terms of innovation and the anchor rubai which is an offshoot of of alibaba but he sat in an interview. China was right how they handled him. And i think that just shows you and that speaks to what i was talking about in the beginning. Which is this idea of elite merger as opposed to just elite capture. In the sense that you know. I think frankly and you're talking about big business. I think it's hard to not talk about big tech. You know what. The chinese communist party did to jack. Aw i think is really what big tech in big business wants to do to trump supporters person conservative. Exactly they wanna jack ma us they wanna you know. Take this show off line. They and they do it. You know the national pulses band on twitter by the way guys. If you're wondering we just had a second termination on youtube. Show site was terminated. Then then mr produces. Youtube site was terminated yesterday. So yeah it's real this.

Say now it's just making whether it's mike flynn's wife having her credit card cancelled exactly no. It's it's it's the tactics of the chinese communist party and it's here and that sometimes it's hard doing what i do because i criticized the chinese communist party so much and they deserve it and they're they're horrible and you know at odds with every value that we hold as americans but you know the american ruling classes kind of doing a lot of the same things you're paying the penalty or what has happened to you from people here in america. Saying what are you doing natalie. You'll shaking the don't do that. You know knock on wood although maybe it's a sign. I need to do more. I've never been banned for thing. I've i've never well at least big tack world I've never barring the national pulse. I've never got a slap on the rest for many of of the big social media platforms although people who watch the war may know that a lot of our stories get censored by one of facebook fact checking partners. Nick called lead stories which we've done a very deep dive into this group A lot of actually. Let's let his elite stories lead story's the one of these quote unquote fact checking organs and really that just another bunch of democrats correct and chinese communist party payroll lease lead. Story's is is one of these organizations that if you've ever been on facebook and you click on and you see a story you get a notification you've just been exposed to fake news. They're the people that decide that and they had been censoring. Our stories coincidentally only the ones that seemed to target biden for a couple of months. And i decided to fight back because i was. I was really madison. I worked really hard on the story. I want people to be able to read it. So i started digging into the group and at first we found that of every political donation that employees had sent. They'd all gone to democrats there. Were a everyone who worked there. There's over one hundred thirty years collectively of experience. Working at cnn has journalists but the story gets more interesting because a few months back they got contracted with tick talk in their parent company by chance to start fact checking which as people while no is actually now officially a chinese state at least partially although at argued. There's no such thing as partially. Johnny stayed on company And they're on their payroll now Fact checking for facebook censoring stories about the origins of in nineteen and censoring our stories to And we had the the editor-in-chief the founder of the outlet on our show and he said he was quote very comfortable being in business with 'bite dance and saw no issues. Working with the chinese communist party tells him you mentioned covert. Let's talk about kovin. Big news this week The nine hundred pages of documents of the intercept got in foyer regarding gain of function research funding. Vira cut out from the us taxpayer and okayed by fao g. Give us give us an give you five minutes. That's that's a luxury luxury in media. Five minutes for those. Who are not familiar with you. Natalie don't know what the national policies haven't heard of rahim kasan which is impossible because well he's rain. What is one of the most important things about the last year and a half when it comes to co vid and wu hand and gain of function that most people ninety nine percent of mexicans have no idea about natalie i think a lot of people saw this intercept foia kind of document dump and a lot of the headlines bombshell groundbreaking revelation new documents. Reveal if you've been reading the national poll. it's not new in in summary. What these documents show. What we've kind of i would say added color to the national polls detailing the people grants who is profiting who was on the ground doing the research. It's a grant that started in two thousand fourteen called understanding the risk of bat corona virus emergence and sounds nice enough But when you dig into that grant which is of course now. Three point seven million dollars taxpayer backed grant. You can see that sixteen of the thirty studies that were completed under that grant were carried out in conjunction with chinese communist party controlled not even partially completely controlled owned and operated scientific entities and of the sixteen thirteen or at the wuhan institute of virology. Which is the only level full military biodefense lab in china. Yes it's also the lab that used to have Military researchers working there. They've deleted those names from their website. We've the archives of it. I'm and it's also lab that on march twenty first twenty twenty one listed. The national institutes of health is a partner and on march twenty. Second deleted that from their website. So that let let me let me ask the naive question. What is america doing. Giving one read send to communist china's biodefense lab like a crazy question. Natalie you beat me to it. And that's kind of the the narrative that i've been hammering. It's not a question of whether or not we funded gain a function research which is of course kind of a weaponization of theology in various different pathogens. It's a question of why we were ever funding chinese government controlled lab in the first place. And i think people don't really understand. It's not just the extent of the chinese government's kind of control over every aspect of chinese society. But this is the lab that has a communist youth league that has the united front work department. That has a party disciplinary committee. That on the weekend holds devotion sessions to the chinese communist party that studies the five year plans. You can go on their their website and see pictures of people taking the oath to the chinese communist party with their hand over their heart and the chinese communist party flag. up in the back They even say and deleted articles that we found that they pledged to implement the chinese communist. Party's agenda quote without compromise. Now at our that the cova nineteen fits that pretty well But this is you know through and through a chinese communist party run both financially and ideologically run labs so you hit the nail on the head as to why we'd ever be funding it in the i wouldn't foundry says a winner funding. We never find it. He's only saying that because we went through a cutout that he gave money to a private us entity and that entity gave it to wuhan and he knew what he was doing he knew wuhan was getting in. Yes so that's wrong for two reasons one. It's just salai put simply saying oh well we didn't fund it because we sent it to another organization the which is thought she's agency works And she has a very relationship with ego health alliance. It's not going to echo. Yeah it's not. Just that she something money found. She spoke at least two times in two thousand sixteen at echo..

"Independent voices now Only in the two thousand chinese regime has expelled eighteen foreign correspondents This was Something unheard of in the in recent times. I believe the reason is that the regime considers it doesn't need foreign correspondents anymore. In the past indicates they needed foreign correspondents to somehow promotes the chinese economic development to promote the successes and now china has a propaganda apparatus in the world that is sufficient for them to promote this aspect. Until does it depend. Does it depend where the reporter works which organization he or she works for or is a view across the board. As far as you are aware. Yeah i don't. I don't think it relates to a particular media as long as it's media as that is independent. The chinese regimes sees a foreign correspondents now as unwanted witnesses.

Lee william was actually done by beijing. Tina bow which is the Newspaper affiliated to the beijing communist youth league. So i think. I mean it's very easy to speak about the chinese regime but i think it might also be worthwhile to move beyond that and look a little deeper into what's actually underneath it and the complexities Reaction from you to that. And then i'll bring in other voices. Yeah i totally agree. It's extremely complex. And in in the past it was possible for these media to engage in interviews in a potential sensitive subjects like at the time of the sars outburst there were much more coverage of the of the south where much more criticism on the government..

Book list for shit else should here. He is talking about now. This is before the internet but not really before satellite satellite was out there and he saw <hes> communications and satellites and how this would affect news satellite system broadcasting permits for example. I i immediate participation in events anywhere in the world ending all news reports <hes> what we call a news report is a verbalised <hes> substitute for participation in that event with satellite broadcasting. You just go to the place and participate directly in the sufferings or the events of that area floods. It's or whatnot <hes> whether this will tend to create a new kind of news. I know for example the present time what we automatically think office news just bad news. If it isn't bad news it isn't news. If it's good news it's likely to be p._r. Or advertising and it takes an awful lot of bad news to sell all that good news that we have to carry in our newspapers magazines so just think of what he's saying here in relation to what we're seeing with news today so this is nine hundred sixty seven was three is fifty two years ago. This guy was saying this either deconstructing perfectly before it even happened and now how he's going to give us insight into what we're witnessing today on social media which back in the day was called the global village. The electronic global new village does that go back to the sixties that term beth came from you. Guys were smart back then here. He is and and listen to the they were. They made us get stone so he couldn't remember anything well. Here's a little jiggling of your handle global. We'll villages not created by the motor car or even by the airplane is created by instant electronic information movement. The global village is at once wants plan. There's why does the planet and small little town where everybody is maliciously engaged in poking his nose that everybody else's business the global village is a world which <hes> you don't necessarily have harmony you have extreme concern with everybody else's business and much involvement in everybody else's life. It's sorta van landers column writ large and it doesn't necessarily mean harmony and peace and quiet but it does mean huge involvement in everybody. Everybody's also everybody else's affairs and so the global village is as big as a planet and as small as a village post office for example the h with the information explosion all the walls go out between age groups ethnic groups between family groups nation national groups between economies the walls all go out people suddenly have to adjust themselves to this new proximity this new interrelationship uh-huh merely to tell them that this has happened doesn't very helpful helpful. What they need to know is if it is happening. What does it mean to me for example. In the matter of say automation nation jobs screwed screw by the way by the way that his deloyed commentary there reflects on an earlier segment of the show where you got your call from holland about shootings in texas as if they should care yup there but in and they witnessed it as if they were there because they witness the video they witnessed firsthand sell. That's what he would call satellite. Now final clip short this is is this was very astute when i heard this and it made me start to think okay. What exactly are we looking for. A medium does things to people <hes>. They're always completely unaware of this <hes>. They don't really notice the new medium that is wrapping them up. They think of the old medium because the old medium is always the content of the new medium as movies tend to be the content of tv and as books looks used to be the content novels used to be the content of movies and so every time a new medium arrives. The medium is the content and it is highly observable highly noticeable talk about the real real roughing up massaging. It's done by the new medium ignored so what exactly is being ignored nord that <hes> is being built with the new medium while everyone obsesses over the old content in the new medium and with that i mean a cable able news clips netflixing even netflix netflix yup they it to a degree they're creating something new but not really they're still doing the old content on the new medium repurposing and producing in similar ways till maybe podcasting example of something that was completely new. I say what we do. View which is a post modernist form of <hes> old medium is exactly what he's talking about. Which is why we're doing it really.
