On International Women’s Day the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights (NCHR) would like to highlight our Chinese partners work to achieve greater gender equality in China. A first Chinese textbook on gender and human rights, contributing to an increase in courses on women’s rights and gender equality in Chinese universities and raising the awareness about domestic violence against women in China are among the achievements partners have made, with the support of the NCHR.
The NCHR International Department has had a long-term focus on domestic violence. Although domestic violence is connected to many different human rights, it was not until recently that it was recognized as a human rights issue in and of itself.
