Jinan Women's Federation in March initiated a project to cultivate "legal mediators," who help women and children protect their legal rights and interests. Organizers plan to conduct various activities, during which women volunteers and workers, with the women’s federations, at various levels in Jinan (capital of East China's Shandong Province), will publicize, among residents, information about the laws and regulations, especially those pertaining to the protection of women and children's legal rights and interests, to help residents improve their understanding of the laws and regulations.
Immediately after the kickoff ceremony, organizers invited "legal mediators" — Li Rongkai and Yuan Qianqian, both members of the law promotion group, under Jinan Women's Federation — to provide a lecture to women volunteers and presidents of the women's federations, at the village and community levels in Changqing (a district in Jinan), to help them better understand the revised Law on the Protection of Rights and Interests of Women (which took effect in January 2023) and the Civil Code of the People’s Republic of China (which took effect in January 2021).
The project's organizers — Jinan Women's Federation and Jinan Justice Bureau — plan to provide training to all (more than 5,600) of the presidents of the women's federations, at the village and community levels in Jinan, by the end of 2023. Then, the "mediators" will publicize information about the laws and regulations, especially those pertaining to the protection of women and children's legal rights and interests, to help residents improve their understanding of the laws and regulations. The "mediators" will also help residents resolve family disputes.
Jinan Women's Federation will make greater efforts to promote the project's implementation, and to encourage women and their family members to respect, study, observe and use the law (to protect their legal rights and interests).
