The State Council Information Office of China holds a press conference on a white paper about the development and progress of Chinese women’s rights over the past 70 years.
Gender equality and women’s rights and development have been an enduring theme of humanity’s pursuit of equality and justice. China has always attached great importance to women’s status and rights. Seventy years since the founding of New China, women’s status and rights in economic activities, the political system, education, international communication and cooperation have largely improved. Meanwhile, a relatively sound system of laws and policies on maternal and child health has been established, and as a result, women’ s health has also significantly improved.
