妇联:反家庭暴力法进入预备立法阶段 - Women's Federation: The Law against Domestic Violence is being prepared for legislation print version
level 1



Yesterday, China's Women's Federation has revealed during an interview that the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) has already brought the Law Against Domestic Violence into articles prepared for legislation. At present, the Law Against Domestic Violence has already entered the last stage of survey and clarification.

In 2010, the Women's Federation has made an advanced study of the state of actions against domestic violence in China and abroad. In one province, 64% of interviewed adults have experienced domestic violence, almost 40% of married couples admit having marriage violence and 60% of minors have suffered from violence from either one or both parents. Since recent years, the Women's Federation is continuously devoting itself to promoting legislation against domestic violence, and for four successive years has advised that such law will be brought in the national legislation plan.

At present, the Law against Domestic Violence has already entered the last survey and clarification stage. Relevant personnel of the Women's Federation explain that the main issue in the legislation against domestic violence is which prevention measurements can be adopted towards such violence. The Women's Federation will gather the feedback of survey results in the Legislation Working Committee of the NPC Standing Committee, preparing for the final legislation.
