An art exhibition celebrating attempts to combat violence against women has been shut down by Beijing authorities.
The show was meant to line up with the UN's International day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, was scheduled to go on view at Beijing's Jinge Art Gallery, but came to see the door bolted shut.
Cui Guangxia, the Beijing-based artist responsible for the curation of the event said, "The reason our exhibition was called off is pressure from higher authorities." Cui has been arrested before for voicing support for democracy in Hong Kong.
The show featuring the work of 64 artists, equally men and women is another step in China's documented crackdown on anyone who speaks out, including liberal academics, journalists, artists, activists and writers.
