Wellesley, MA–On February 28, 2008, Rangita de Silva-de Alwis, senior advisor on international programs at the Wellesley Centers for Women, will examine the recent revisions to the Women's Law in China through the lenses of some exciting new developments in gender-based lawmaking in Asia, and explore to what degree human rights norms and transnational connections have informed those legal transformations and how much of this is translated into actual practice.
