The National Association of Women and the Law (NAWL), in partnership with the Association of Canadian Community Colleges, Queen’s University and the University of Alberta is working on the Canada/China Women’s Law Project. This project is funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) to promote women’s rights in China through improved awareness and implementation of the 1992 Law on the Protection of the Rights and Interests of Women and other relevant laws and regulations.
NAWL is sharing skills with Chinese women who are working on the public information dissemination component of the project. In January 2000, NAWL’s executive Director, Bonnie Diamond, and NAWL Communications Consultant Sylvia Spring travelled to China to conduct workshops with grassroots Chinese women on the information dissemination techniques used by women’s groups in Canada.
