Established in January 1991, Women's Studies Institute of China (WSIC) is a national level institution specialized in comprehensive studies on women and gender issues. Since 1991, WSIC has carried out a number of theoretical and empirical research projects on the history, laws and regulations and policies related to women's issues, as well as comparative studies between China and other countries. WSIC believes our mandate is to facilitate the formulation and implementation of state laws and policies and promote women's development and gender equality.

Research Areas:

WSIC has always been interested in such issues as women's development and gender equality in the economic, political and cultural life. We have carried out a number of important research projects. WSIC also sponsored many important national and international symposiums concerning women's issues. In recent years, we have paid great attention to produce the important policy papers to the leaders of ACWF and the central party committee. In this way the women's studies have effectively served for state legislation, government decision-making, and the practice of women's movements toward gender equality.

Research Outcomes:

Representing ACWF, WSIC drafted a number of important policy papers. The leaders of the Party's Central Committee, the State Council and relevant departments paid great attention to them.
