Women's rights campaigners have urged authorities to heed growing calls for a speedy introduction of a dedicated law on domestic violence.

In an open letter, Gender and Development in China said legislators should encourage participation and supervision from the public and grassroots organizations.

The letter, addressed to the National People's Congress Standing Committee, was published on Sunday, the annual International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
