'Heaven Cannot Abide Women Without Might' ('Nu Bu Qiangda Tian Bu Rong') is a new Chinese journalism drama that details the journey of fictional journalist Zheng Yuqing, a female reporter through the rise and fall of China's print media. The series will span a 15-year period that saw China's print media exit what is considered its "golden age" into an era of state-run newspapers.

The series is already a massive success with the episodes having already amassed 142 million views on the streaming platform iQIYI. 'Heaven Cannot Abide Women Without Might' is written by feminist writer Zhang Xin, who aims to draw attention to issues such as gender inequality in the workplace and work-life balance.
