Seminar held on equal access to justice for special groups

WUHAN, July 1 (Xinhua) -- A seminar on equal access to justice for special groups was held Thursday in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province.

A side event of the UN Human Rights Council's 50th session, the seminar was attended by over 90 experts and scholars from home and abroad.

Attendees discussed equal rights and judicial protection for groups including women, disabled people and the elderly.

Zhang Wanhong, dean of the Institute for Human Rights Studies at Wuhan University, said China has adopted a series of positive measures to eliminate discrimination, empower the people, promote inclusive and sustainable development, and promote the substantive equality and all-round development of all members of society, including women, children, the elderly and people with disabilities.

Liu Xiaonan, a professor from the China University of Political Science and Law, said China has initially developed a comprehensive legal system for the protection of women's rights and interests, providing convenient, efficient, equal and inclusive public legal services to women, especially low-income women and women with disabilities.
