Dear friends, welcome to log on the website Gender and Development in China (GAD).

The GAD website is the mechanism of the GAD network to distribute and share information, which has collected and disseminated a great deal of information and sources pertinent to the themes on gender and development. It not only provides information to researchers and actors in the field, but also promulgates the concepts about gender and development to promote the public’s gender awareness. With financial support from the Oxfam Hong Kong, the Media Monitor for Women Network takes charge of the renewal of the website’s contents and daily maintenance. It is also under the guidance of the GAD Network Coordinate Group and is examined by the GAD Annual Session.

In line with the principle of resource sharing, mutual promotion and advancing jointly, the GAD website takes up following work:

· Integrate, collect and disseminate information and knowledge on gender and development to build a resource database for the research and action of women’s NGOs;

· Help the public to learn views of women’s NGOs and knowledge about gender/feminism to increase the support from the people for gender organizations;

· Deepen the thoughts on women/gender issues through analysis on hot issues to campaign for relevant actions;

· Strengthen the cohesive force among GAD members to promote the development of Chinese women and gender movement through information exchange.

Based on the revision made in October 2004, the GAD website undertook another revision in January 2010, thus having new columns as well as graphics and frames. While at the same time, it added new functions and contents. The new website mainly includes columns of “News,” “GAD Network Trends,” “NGO’s Actions,” “Focus Discussion,” “Resource Treasure,” “Announcement,” “Special Topics” and “Women’s Voice.” The specifications of each column are as below:
