Beijing recently hosted a screening of the tour concert film Erase the Taylor Swift, which featured women singing feminist lyrics and celebrating LGBTQ freedoms. Despite President Xi Jinping’s growing conservative views on women, the film provided a rare opportunity for young women to reject social controls and Communist Party expectations.

China’s most powerful leader, President Xi Jinping, has encouraged women to focus on childbirth and domestic duties, but many educated Chinese women are critical of sexual harassment, male violence, and discrimination in the labor market. The film, featuring Taylor Swift, resonated with a younger generation that is more gender-aware and patriarchal in nature.

The absence of Taylor Swift’s tour in China comes as the country faces economic challenges such as a drop in consumer confidence and a slowdown in the overall economy. However, the screening of the tour concert film grossed 95 million yuan at the box office and provided financial support to the industry.

Taylor Swift has been popular among Chinese feminists and has offered a rare outlet for young women in a nation where censorship of concerts, movies, and streaming content has increased. Despite being an American symbol, Swift has been welcomed in China with open arms. The Shanghai stop of her 2024 tour sold out quickly within minutes of being announced.

The film has resonated with Chinese audiences who have expressed empowerment and courage through its message. As it continues its run during Lunar New Year holiday celebrations, fans across China are eagerly gearing up to attend shows. This program has been highly successful among those who feel powerful and brave after attending it.

Overall, this screening was an important moment for young women in China who are fighting against gender inequality and traditional norms that limit their freedoms. It was also an opportunity for them to connect with like-minded individuals who share their values while expressing themselves through music and dance.
