Hong Kong Female activist nicknamed Chinese Heroine Real Mulan

A 23-year-old pro-democracy activist in Hong Kong Agnes Chow, has got a new nickname.

Her supporters have started calling her “the real Mulan”  in reference to the legendary Chinese heroine who fought to save her family and country.

Ms Chow was one of a handful of activists and media figures arrested this week under a controversial new security law imposed by Beijing.

She has been charged with colluding with foreign forces if convicted, she could face up to life in jail.

She has now been released on bail, but her arrest prompted an outpouring of support, with many tweeting the hashtag #FreeAgnes.

Mulan is an ancient Chinese legend, but became popular globally through the 1998 Disney animated film.

The story features a young woman who disguised herself as a man so she can fight to save her family and country.

A live-action remake of the film was to be released this year, the titular role played by Chinese-American actress Liu Yifei.
