The world is discussing about the Missouri Congressman, Todd Akin’s remarks about ‘legitimate rape‘. He claimed that women who suffer ‘legitimate rape’ rarely get pregnant. His remarks led into a huge outcry all over. The article that I am giving you here discusses about China and their concepts of public service and rape. Also, it throws light on the case of a mother, Tang Hui, fighting to provide justice to her daughter who was abducted, gang-raped and then forced into prostitution in 2006, when she was 11.
There is a brief mention of China’s one-child policy as well describing Feng Jianmei’s story, who was compelled to abort her seven month fetus in June 2012. This article published recently in the NewYorker is a fine write-up that will make one aware of certain issues in China which might have been neglected. I’d just say – Read this because it makes sense to know about the world and its different countries with their diverse concerns and customs.
