China is no stranger to criticism regarding its human rights violations and other acts largely deemed as appalling and barbaric. Starvation, body mutilation, a tyrannical government, controlled access to information, and much more comprise the horrors that China imposes upon its own people.
This Monday marks International Women’s Day, hence placing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) under a new spotlight. China is infamous for treating women poorly and on a day designed to highlight the rights and accomplishments of women, there is a lot of room for discussion regarding the CCP.
As Breitbart News confirms, human rights champions and activists are speaking out against the CCP’s treatment of women on this International Women’s Day.
The Chinese Communist Party’s Violation of Women’s Rights
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers president Reggie Littlejohn spoke with Breitbart News about the plight of women in China. Littlejohn explained that between forced abortions, the two-child policy, forced sterilizations, poor treatment of widows, etc., the movement for women’s rights has a long way to go.
It’s also very well-known that China has a strong preference for male children, rather than female children. Hence, when forced abortions happen in China, baby girls are more often the victims than baby boys. This, too, is a matter that Littlejohn drew attention to while speaking with Breitbart.

After branding China as one of the “worst women’s rights offenders,” Littlejohn called upon feminists to stand for the rights of Chinese women. She then urged that the 2022 Winter Olympics be moved from China to a place that is not responsible for such egregious and inhumane treatment of women.
Other Issues with the CCP
The Chinese Communist Party’s cruel and loathsome treatment of women is only the tip of the iceberg regarding issues with China.
Forced labor, the origins of coronavirus, and even reported plans of world domination are each linked to China. International Women’s Day has served as a reminder of the CCP’s problematic nature; however, this will not go away after March 8, 2021 has passed.
On this #IWD I’m reminded of mom. When I left for USMA, she told me, “don’t let them wear you down, wear them down, give this challenge all you have.” I’ll never forget that. We should all remember it.

Between now and the foreseeable future, there is much work to be done. Some of this work involves the human rights violations in China, whereas other work deals with ensuring that China doesn’t threaten the American way of life.
