An Update on the Zhongze Women's Legal Counseling Center (formerly the Beijing University Women's Legal Aid Center)

I'm amazed how much my one post on the Beijing University Women's Legal Aid Center is viewed, so I thought I should provide an update on the Center which is now registered under two names: Zhongze Women's Legal Counseling and Services Center, and Qianqian Law Firm.  The Zhongze Center also houses the China Women's Watch project.

Two articles that we translated for China Development Brief (English) profile path breaking work carried out by the Zhongze Center on sexual harassment in China.  Sexual harassment in the workplace is a very new issue in China, and the Zhongze Center is working with six companies in China to raise awareness of the problem, and put in place mechanisms for addressing instances of sexual harassment. 

For more about Zhongze Center's work on this issue, check out the two articles at:

A NGO Works with Companies to Prevent Sexual Harassment

Sexual Harassment is a Gender Equality Issue

This post reminds me that I should do more to link this blog with our postings on China Development Brief (English) which offer a rich array of readings and other resources on China's NGO sector.
