Gender ID law: In China, people can only change 'gender identity' after finished the complete transgender surgery. No self-identified gender is accepted.

Feminism movements in China:

Nowadays, women in China still face discrimination in the workplace, politics and at home, and feminist movements have been facing unprecedented crackdowns in recent years. There are more women who call themselves feminists now than ever before. The voices of women are getting louder and louder, even though the Chinese Communist Party began ramping up its efforts to stamp out feminist voices in the country. Dozens of feminist accounts have been abruptly shut down on popular social media platforms like Weibo and Douban since April, 2021.

Child policy in China:

China scrapped its decades-old one-child policy in 2016, replacing it with a two-child limit which has failed to lead to a sustained upsurge in births. China announced that it would allow all married couples to have three children in 2021, ending a two-child policy that has failed to raise the country’s declining birthrates. It also means women in China will continue to be oppressed and lose power.

Sex imbalance in China:

China is faced with a huge sex imbalance, the percentage of the female population is 48.71 percent compared to 51.29 percent male population. China has 37.17 million more males than females. China has world’s most skewed sex ratio at birth. It also illustrates that the mainland performs poorly in women’s education and political power.
