Wang Zheng, professor of women’s studies at the University of Michigan, said 1,000 campaigners attending a meeting of the Commission on the Status of Women in New York had already joined the call for the five to be released.

She said she hoped the Chinese government would correct what she described as a ‘mistake’ by public security authorities, to avoid damage to its international image as a supporter of gender equality.
