Dear Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Kristof,

Please tell me again how good Mao was for women? Tell me again why you quote a Maoism as the title of your book and the name of your foundation? How, exactly, is China's brutal enforcement of it's one-child policy good for women? Yes, yes, I know you deplore sex selection abortions, but what about government action against women who defy the policy and become pregnant with a second child?

Chinese woman taken to an undisclosed labor camp

CNA is reporting that, one day after being released from a previous arrest, a day in which her house was under constant surveillance, a Chinese woman who protested the regime's brutal one-child policy has been arrested again. The charge is that she had taken part in illegal activities (in the space of a brief one-day period in which her house was under constant government surveillance, mind you).

She was released from a previous imprisonment six months early due to health conditions, including dangerously high blood pressure.

Mao's husband has not been told which camp she was sent to. They have three daughters.

So, Mr. and Mrs. Kristof, can you please tell me how your wonderful China is helping Mao Hengfeng and her three daughters hold up their half of the sky?
