China’s Ministry of Public Security announced on Wednesday that it has launched a nationwide 10-month campaign to crack down on the abduction and trafficking of women and children. China Daily reports that police officers will visit places including orphanages and rescue management institutions, as well as staff members in communities, villages, and other administrative organs, to comb through evidence of infringements of women’s and children’s rights to focus on suspected abductees. This follows the reporting of a high-profile case of a woman chained up in a rundown hut who gave birth to eight children over a 24 year period with no one having reported her abduction to local authorities.
