Weibo is a very popular social media platform in China. Many people use Weibo to report social events and make their voices heard. The current study presents empirical evidence of how social media users in China frame sexual and domestic violence. Through content analysis over nearly 100 trending posts that are related to sexual violence or domestic violence, I found that those incidents were less framed directly as sexual or domestic violence case. While the explanation behind such alternative framing is unknown in the current study, future studies should investigate the motivations based on the preliminary results and discussion of this study. Other potential research directions include looking at the consequences of the alternative framing for sexual and domestic violence in the context of China.
