SPILLED WATER SHORTS
Twenty years ago in Beijing, the UN Commission declared, “Women’s rights are human rights.” Ironically, that message was censored in China before it ever reached the country’s 600 million women.
Now, another UN milestone, the Millennium Development Goals will reach their deadline in 2015. Representing one in five women in the world, Chinese women have the potential to lift the status of women on a global scale.
As human rights advocates assess gender equality in preparation for an agenda for 2015 and beyond, it has never been more important to ask: What is the status of women in China?
We have developed three, online exclusive, shorts as complimentary pieces to the SPILLED WATER feature under the “Women Defining their Worth” Campaign umbrella.
