Both private and public sector employers in China frequently specified ‘men only’ or ‘men preferred’ in job ads
Recruitment ads for Chinese internet giant Alibaba advertise a key perk: the company’s beautiful women.
A post first published in 2013 and still available on the company’s official Weibo account as of January, featured photos of female Alibaba employees in suggestive poses. “They want to be your coworkers. Do you want that too?” the ad said. A 2012 recruitment video showed a female employee pole dancing, and a montage of female employees saying, “I love tech boys.”
