The Women of China Deserve Rights for Themselves and their Baby Girls

Target: Chinese Legislators

Goal: To create rights for women and their children in China.

In China families are only allowed to have one child due to population issues. This has led to a heart-breaking outcome for many of the baby girls born because the men in many families want a son to carry on their name. China has been a male dominated society from its imperial past to its communist present, but this mentality is starting to catch up with them. Already there are more men than women in China, its only a matter of time before there are millions of men with no family at all. This is only the large scale issue, what’s leading to it is a complete tragedy— women’s right are horribly violated and innocent baby girls are being found left to die in garbage dumps.

This appalling situation goes against what should be a natural instinct to protect ones child. I simply cannot understand how someone could do this to any child, let alone their own. In many cases it seems that the men are the ones who want to have boys which makes me wonder, are the women being forced against their will to leave their precious daughters for dead? It is known that there is already a problem of forced abortion in China because of the one child minimum, this alone is a horrible violation of women’s rights.

This violation of rights for women as well as discrimination in education and employment have all contributed to a very high female suicide rate in China. An estimated 500 women commit suicide every day in China, the wretched truth is that this is their only escape from the confines of their male dominated society. This deplorable situation must change, women deserve education, employment, and above all the right to choose what is done to their own bodies and their baby girls.


Dear China Legislators,

The current situation of women’s rights in China is completely appalling. Unequal opportunities, forced abortion, and now baby girls found near dumpsters is a horrific consequence of China’s male- dominated communist society. It is no wonder that so many women commit suicide in China, it is their only escape from the confines of society.

Please take the necessary actions to end this horrible violation of women’s rights. We understand that population is an issue in China, but surely there is a better solution, perhaps if women were more educated there would be less accidental pregnancies. Sterilization is also a better alternative than forcing a women to endure such a traumatic procedure against her will.
