Chai Ling was known as the general commander in the student-led protests of 1989 against the established authorities in China. Now that she follows Jesus, she sees the protests in a different light, that the pro-democracy movement was really part of a spiritual awakening in China that is still unfolding. Chai Ling believes that Christianity is an essential pre-condition for democracy to flourish.
She has also been gripped by the plight of millions of girls killed due to China’s one-child policy and started an organization, All Girls Allowed, to fight forced abortion and restore value to girls in that country.
