Guangxi Establishes Posts for Protecting Women Children's Rights

Guangxi Women's Federation and public security organs founded rights protection posts in 2011 to better protect women and children's rights and interests.

The rights protection post is an expansion of the rights protection collegial panel, and it opens preferential litigation passage to women and children, following this priority principle and linkage mechanism during subsequent work.

Guangxi Women's Federation also links the rights protection post with the Guangxi procuratorate and public security system. With the cooperation of these three parts, the job of protecting women and children's rights has progressed smoothly and actively.

The number of rights protection posts in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region reached 702 as of the end of 2017. During the past seven years, the Guangxi courts undertook 37,729 criminal cases and 266,701 civil cases concerning women and children, while the Guangxi procuratorates undertook 5,224 cases and the Guangxi public security system undertook 3,013 cases. All these timely actions effectively protected women and children's rights and interests.

A few days ago, Guangxi Women's Federation helped a woman surnamed Huang who was suffering from domestic violence get a personal protection order with the court issuing a protection verdict in just in three hours.

"It is a typical case of infringing on women's rights, and it is our duty to protect women and children's rights. The effective solution in this case shows the success of the rights protection posts," said Wu Yanjuan, vice-president of Guangxi Women's Federation.

As protectors of women and children, women's federations at all levels can support those involved in difficulties, popularize law knowledge and improve their confidence after the lawsuit.

In order to offer timely, effective help, Guangxi Women's Federation united 12 departments to found the anti-domestic violence linkage mechanism, avoiding domestic violence through mediating family disputes at the beginning.
