20 Years Experience of China's Policy and Practice

By Jin Chi, Wei Bu, Wenli Liu

China's experience in the field of women's and girls' education and development has not been adequately summarized and shared with the international community. To fill the gap and celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 4th World Conference on Women, this book systematically summarizes and disseminates the strategies and good practices regarding women's and girls' education and development in China, so as to present national experiences in the promotion of rural women's empowerment and gender equality. The book reviews the policies and actions taken by the Chinese government, international organizations, and NGOs in the past two decades. It reflects and shares the experiences and lessons regarding the promotion of girls' education, gender equality in media, and sexuality health education and services for youth with the international community. The features are as follows: the adoption of gender and development perspectives * the integration of a macro development context and typical case studies * the reflection of multidisciplinary approaches * the contribution to international concerns and dialogue.
