GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, JUNE 27, 2019.   Women’s Rights Without Frontiersco-hosted a Panel at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland, together with the Women’s United Nations Reporting Network.  WRWF President, Reggie Littlejohn, stated, “It was a great honor, and indeed a minor miracle, to co-host this landmark Panel, highly critical of the Chinese government’s record on women’s rights.  China sits on the Human Rights Council in Geneva and has veto power.  I don’t know how our Panel seemed to slip through the cracks!”  The venue was packed, indicating the high level of interest in hearing the truth regarding the abuses against the rights of women and girls perpetrated by the Chinese Communist Party.  Littlejohn’s remarks focused on several ways in which the Chinese government has violated the Beijing Platform for Action, whose 25thanniversary will arrive in 2020.  Specifically, Littlejohn focuses on the continuation of the sex-selective abortion of baby girls and forced abortion under the Two-Child Policy, as well as the unimaginable suffering of abandoned, elderly widows in the Chinese countryside.  Her full Address can be found below.
