Kim Lee put a face on the otherwise anonymous stories of domestic violence in China, when she posted photos of her bruises online. They reveal what she said were chronic beatings by her then-husband, the celebrity English teacher Li Yang.
李金将自己遭受家暴的脸部照片放到网上,这种图片一般是匿名发表的。正如她说的那样,图片显示她长期受到前夫的毒打,他就是中国有名的英语老师李阳。

Her story went viral in a matter of hours.
几小时内她的故事很快就传播开来。

“I had no idea that overnight it would be ten and twenty thousand people and I also had no idea that it was so endemic here, I thought it was really my personal problem and not something so widely spread,” she said.
“一下子就有一两万人知道了这件事,我根本没想到,也不知道传播得这么快,我想这只是我的私人问题,本不该传得这么快。”

China's official women protection agency estimates that one quarter of women are abused by their spouses, but the actual figure is likely to be higher. Many episodes likely go unreported because authorities seldom take action.
中国妇女保护官方机构估计有四分之一的女性遭受配偶的虐待,但实际数据要更高。由于当局很少采取行动,很多这样的故事都不为人知晓。

"The unifying theme that gave me strength to carry on this long journey was no one does anything, no one helps us, I've been to the police they don't care, I went to the women's federation they did not call back," Lee said. "I tried to talk to my mother and mum said what are you going to do, he owns the house he owns the car, just this sense of helplessness in the face of this problem.”
“我之所以能有力量坚持这么久,是因为没有人对此做些什么,没有人帮助我们,我去找警察,他们根本不管,我去妇女联合会,他们根本不回信。我跟母亲讲了这事,她说他有房子和车子,在这件问题上你无依无靠,你该怎么办?”

Lee won her divorce case on the grounds of domestic violence, a result that legal workers hailed as a landmark decision.
李金以家暴为由赢得了这场离婚案,法律工作者称这是里程碑式的决定。
