16 Days: Day 4

16dayslogo_chinese  Today, we celebrate China’s drafting of a national law on domestic violence. Yes, it is just a draft and it still needs to be passed and then implemented…but it’s great start and it will pave the way for access to justice in a country where, according to the most conservative estimates, 1 in 4 married women experience domestic violence.

And, in other news, the Finnish Parliament has also just approved same-sex marriage – congratulations, Finland!
