As Hillary Clinton campaigns for the US presidential nomination, she will perhaps not be helped by the testimony of Chen Guangcheng, the Chinese dissident who escaped house arrest in Dongshigu and sought refuge in the US Embassy in 2012. Chen's memoir, The Barefoot Lawyer, reveals his view of the flawed diplomacy between Clinton and the Chinese government, and details his work with Chinese women who suffered abuse under the One Child policy.
