A revised version of the Women Rights and Interest Protective Regulation (WRIPR) will be introduced by the local Guangzhou Women's Federation (GWF), giving females the right to lodge a complaint.

"The new version has clearly detailed the notion and behaviors of sexual harassment. As long as we receive a complaint on office sexual harassment from women employees, we would send the concerned company a safe-guarding rights-report," the China Daily quoted Li Jianlan, chairwoman of GWF, as saying.

The WRIPR has also implemented a new system on domestic violence, securing women's family rights, the paper reports.
