In many of the countries in the world, women are still under represented during their work and lives. According to the Global Gender Gap Report 2016, China came in at 99, after slipping from last year’s position of 91, which in turn was lower than its 2014 ranking of 87. Do you think women are under represented in China? What do you think of China's gender equality? I believe Chinese women need to have more seats in national legislations, which will force policy that gets passed more considerate towards women’s rights.

Gender equality proves just what it says - whether genders are equal or not.

It does not try to prove that women SHOULD have 50'% of all official positions, or whether women SHOULD get as much money as men for same jobs.

OP seemed to think that gender-equal distribution of officlal positions would result in legislations that is more considerate to women. Indeed, women's rights are even noted in constitution of PRC, but then again many other things are too, which are ignored in real world China.

One way 'gender equality ' can be determined is by the value placed on girls from before birth to work opportunities and the treatment of women in the workplace.
