I chose to analyze this the article relevant to feminist movement from Global Voice website, written by Oiwan Lam. This news story reveal how could online movement of anti- sexual harassment regulate in China. oiwan lam also refer to case of Harvey Weinsten assault to Hollywood female star. I like to apply the 5WH theory and ‘basic’ principles from Broadway to critical this web story.
Image – thumbnail image be add in front of this new story display the Chinese girl with anti-sexual harassment banner in Washington. I would suggest changing this picture to image of ‘we too’ logo could be better to set as front picture.
Interactivity – This is absolute weakness for this article, the only way to get touch with writer is by email. After this news, when I want to read some further articles, I cannot find the relevant report like how’s ‘me too’ movement going in other country from breaking news.
Hyperlink – There are seven embedded links throughout the entire article, Nevertheless, one of the worldwide survey been blocked, and cannot access to content of questionnaire, which designed by Wei Tingting for collect the experience of sexual assault in university.
Scan ability – set more subtitles could make article looks clearly. I cannot find any subtitle throughout the whole article. Reader could feel the story is too long to understand well. I would suggest the writer to add subtitle to divided the whole news story into four parts- ‘emerging of sexual harassment in Chinese university’ ‘online movement has been regulate by government’ ‘Luo qianqian decide to stand out and break the silence’ ‘Weibo and social media response during the entire movement’
