Chai Ling’s leadership role in the 1989 uprising in China’s Tiananmen Square changed the course of her life. Instead of attaining freedom, she became one of China’s most wanted criminals. Even after her escape to the United States, she was regarded with suspicion because of her past. Freedom remained an elusive dream. In her book, Ling says that when she committed her life to Christ years later, she discovered true freedom. She also followed her calling to found All Girls Allowed, an organization devoted to “restoring life, value, and dignity to girls and mothers in China.” (Tyndale)
