BEIJING —Wang Yu* was a fearless human rights lawyer, defying political threats to defend abused schoolchildren, jailed feminists and persecuted minorities. That defiance steeled her against her government and carried her through years of imprisonment.

 

 Only one thing could make her compromise: her son.

 

... Mother and son have become characters in an unenviable, if ironic, twist of fate. Wang this month received an “International Women of Courage” award from the U.S. State Department. Chinese security officers blocked her from attending the online ceremony, putting her under 24-hour monitoring and prohibiting her internet use for several days.

 


Meanwhile, her son, now 21, is held in legal limbo by the same government that honored his mother.

The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable,
But the mouth of the wicked what is perverse.
