A female chief judge has been honored by the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) as a national advanced individual for her outstanding work in safeguarding women's and children's rights and interests.

Yu Ye has worked at the People's Court in Dorbed Mongolian Autonomous County in Daqing City in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province since 1988. Working as a clerk, assistant judge, judge and chief judge, she has received various awards including the March 8th Red-banner Pacesetter in Dorbed and Daqing. The courts she has worked at have also received several awards as advanced collectives.

Yu has helped solve all kinds of civil disputes, bringing satisfaction to many people with her dispensing of justice.

"As a large number of the people who seek our help are vulnerable in the area of safeguards for their rights and interests, we have no choice but to be devoted to our duties and enforce the law impartially," Yu said.

Because there have been increasing numbers of cases of violations of women's and children's rights and interests in recent years, Yu founded a collegial panel two years ago, with herself as the chief judge and two other experienced judges as her colleagues. She also invited the president and vice president of the court to work as consultants and five officials from the women's federation in the county as jurors.

Recently, she persuaded a man whose wife had contracted uterine cancer to send her to a hospital and withdraw a divorce claim before a trial started. She has also worked together with a village head in Taikang Township to persuade three men to perform their duty of supporting their elderly mother.

Since the panel was founded, a total of 63 civil disputes concerning marriages, family, land contracts and infringement of rights have been concluded through mediation.
