An official with the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) said China's top legislature is set to draft the first law on domestic violence, Xinhua reported. 据新华社报道,全国妇女联合会的一名官员表示,我国最高立法机构将起草首部反家庭暴力法。
This will be the country's first independent and comprehensive law on domestic violence. 这将是我国第一部独立的反家庭暴力的综合性法律。
Jiang Yue'e, an ACWF official, said the ACWF stepped up efforts to assist National People's Congress in drafting the law and hopes to accelerate the legislative process. The federation has drafted a proposed version of the law that it hopes would provide a reference to legislators, she said. However, there is no timetable for the new law. 妇联官员蒋月娥表示,妇联加大了协助全国人大起草该法的力度,希望能加快立法进程。她说,妇联已起草了一个建议版,希望能给立法人员作为参考。但是新法的拟定颁布还没时间表。

According to a 2007 ACWF survey, domestic violence occurred in 30 percent of the 270 million families and over 85 percent of the victims were women. About 100,000 families break up each year as a result of domestic violence.
