"When Dai was first beaten, she said, she immediately went to a police station in Beijing. They told her to go back to her husband, sending her home without a record of the attack. 'The police just didn’t care,' she said. (Reached by phone, Dai’s husband declined to comment on the case.) As the violence escalated and her husband’s family took custody of her son, she repeatedly sought help from local authorities — and they repeatedly brushed her off. 'They said, ‘I do not live in your home and I have not seen him beat you,’ 'Dai said"

"Zhang goes on to say that 'it’s just so much harder to get jobs because they make extra demands… some companies will refuse to hire women of child-bearing age. And sometimes if a woman gets pregnant, they will sack them. Sometimes they will force women to write that ‘in the next ten years I promise I will not have children''" (para 10).

"One critic of the [market] reforms, social commentator and author Zhang Lijia, says that China’s shift from a planned economy to a market economy model has brought changes and opportunities for both men and women – particularly urban and educated women. But it has also brought setbacks, including job losses. 'I think women have shouldered most of the cost and burden during the transition from a planned economy to the market economy,' she says. 'For example, [in] ailing state-owned enterprises, women are always [the] first to be let off'" (para 5-6).

"In the world’s most populous country, where men outnumber women, it’s interesting that fewer women appear to be joining, or remaining, in the workforce than in previous decades. Former chairman of the Communist Party in China, Mao Zedong, famously promoted the slogan that 'women hold up half the sky.' With 90% of China’s working age women in cities in employment by the 1970s, that seemed to be the case. But as market reforms have taken off, pulling more private companies in to the employer mix, female labour rates have steadily declined – by 2010, the census showed that only 44.7% of women were employed. That’s a proportion far higher than...more

"Recent figures show that women in China’s cities now earn 67.3% of what men make. Meanwhile, for women in the countryside, it’s even less at 56%. As with other countries there are several contributing factors for this gender pay gap. But one difference in China are mandatory retirement ages. Women must retire earlier than men – that’s age 55 for state employees, versus age 60 for men" (para 11-12).

Of the 204 members, only ten are women" (para 13).
