Women’s Economic Empowerment by Tourism at Ban Wan Village

By Sijie Chen and Xingjian Ren
In China, minority women are facing serious economic problems. They often suffer from lack of local jobs with sustainable incomes. In Xinjiang in 2018, minority women’s employment rate is 32.1%. For national minorities in Southwestern China especially in Yunnan Province, the circumstance is similar: minority women’s employment rate is low. Even if they are to find a job, without local job opportunities, they can only find jobs outside of the village in cities and towns.

Exploring a ‘Humanitarian Prescription’ for Pneumoconiosis

By Wanmi Sui, Jinming Qi, Yuhan Sun, Chi Zhang

Pingxiang has transformed itself from an underdeveloped and agricultural-dependent village into a relatively strong economic power. It has experienced rapid social and economic growth that once allowed Pingxiang to become a prosperous city during the mid-20th century. In the 1950s, Pingxiang exploited its mining resources to the largest extent while turning the city into a leading iron, steel, chemical, and machinery industry. [1] Because of the excessive favor on capital over labor, the mining sector has witnessed the rise of a severe and irreversible occupational risk——pneumoconiosis. The lucky majority of the population naturally enjoy the astonishing development; what we forget is those who truly devoted all their youth, efforts, and dedication. They are the ones that are suffering because of the prosperity; they are the epitome of Pingxiang’s broken past, the neglected minority that is doomed to be disregarded.

“We cannot ignore those who fall down when the whole country is moving forward,” said the famous director Zhangke Jia. Those who suffer from pneumoconiosis are exactly the group who are being ignored. Pneumoconiosis is a chronic lung disease, which mainly results from a long time working in a dusty environment. The disease is severely underestimated.

River Management——A Phoenix Reborn in Nanjing, China

By Huang Binrui, Li Yang, Mi Renzhi, Yang Shuo

Many Nanjing citizens may still remember such a view: when walking along the rivers in several residential areas in Nanjing, people had to cover their noses. Taking a close look at the rivers, many refuse collection stations were emitting dreadfully black liquid directly into the river, producing a horrible and disgusting smell. The view was easily seen before 2015. Back then, not only Nanjing was facing poor river quality and management, but many other cities in China were confronting the management problem of black-odor rivers. Fortunately, such a view is rarely seen in Nanjing now. Instead, now Rivers are cleaner and the landscapes are more eco-friendly; near the riverside, many elderly citizens chat with each other when doing some exercises every morning; intimate couples walk their dogs here together with smiles on their faces. You may wonder: how did the change occur? To be more specific, what technical methods and policies were carried out in Nanjing in so short a period from 2015 to 2021 to accomplish this feat?
