Chinanews, Shanghai, September 12 – Chinese women are striving for an environment in which their rights are better protected, and their efforts are not in vain, said Gu Xiulian, Chairlady of All-China Women’s Federation proved at a meeting on building a system to protect women’s rights held on September 11.|
At present, Chinese women have more channels to express their political viewpoints and their needs. Earlier this year, a young mother E-mailed Han Zheng, the mayor of Shanghai, saying that she would like a regulation to protect the privacy of mothers like her when feeding their babies in public places. Soon, the building of nurseries in public places was put on the agenda after discussion.
It is not rare for ordinary Chinese women to protect their rights via legal channels, despite the fact that many of them still suffer from social discrimination, particularly those in rural areas. Single mothers, laid off female workers, “empty-nest” mothers, female jail inmates and female migrant workers still belong to the vulnerable group in China, and the government is working hard to help them.
Women’s federations at all levels in China have become one of the most important platforms for women to express themselves, as these organizations have helped to set up 3,200-plus special courts with more than 8,000 women as juries, for the benefit of women victims of domestic violence and discrimination.
