China revises anti-sexual harassment and discrimination law

China has updated its decades-old women’s law to improve gender equality, days after the Communist Party barred women from its top echelons for the first time in 25 years.

The nation’s top legislature passed an amendment to the Law on the Protection of Women’s Rights and Interests on Sunday, according to a statement on the website of the Chinese National People’s Congress. The revised law will be adopted from 2023.
