Poverty alleviation targets gender inequality – Jiang Zhuqing

From China Daily (link):

China will pay more attention to gender mainstreaming and forming gender-sensitive policies in the development of the new countryside, said a senior official from the State Council yesterday.

However, gender inequality is still very common in many poor rural areas in China, said Bettina Gransow, a professor from the Free University in Berlin, in a keynote speech.

The gender dimensions of in China are largely under-diagnosed in official statistics since many figures are collected on a household basis without making gender distinctions, said a report conducted by the Asian Development Bank.
