According to the Shanghai Women's Federation's recently released statistics on complaints it received in 2011, family disputes have declined, while the number of property rights and social security complaints have increased.

Last year, the Shanghai Women's Federation received 24,140 complaints in total, of which family disputes accounted for 39.4%, decreasing by 7% compared with the year before. The disputes are mostly about domestic violence, extramarital affairs and custody issues.

Meanwhile, complaints and consultations on property rights and social security have risen higher, accounting for 23% of the total. Inheritance rights and relocation issues are the most discussed in terms of property rights. Due to policy adjustments, maternity insurance and unequal pension between men and women have emerged as hot topics of complaint in the field of social security.

According to the statistics, the majority of the complaint lodgers are non-Shanghainese daughters-in-law. On the one hand, the families they marry into often impede their household registration while on the other hand, their relocation rights are often violated.
