Chinese welfare group urges govt to abolish pelvic exams in civil service recruitment

Beijing, Wed, 21 Mar 2012 ANI

Beijing, Mar 21 (ANI): A public welfare organization in China has urged the government to abolish conducting gynecological examinations in the physical exams for civil service recruitment.


In a letter to authorities including Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security on Monday, Beijing Yirenping Center (BYC) said that the exams were a violation of women's privacy and dignity, and a discrimination against female staff.


The letter also said that the exams did not have any direct relation with the future work of civil service, The China Daily reports.


"Gynecological examinations involve private parts of a woman's body, and the related information should not be known by others except for the purpose of medical care," said Wu Rongrong, a staff member of BYC.


Yang Zhanqing, chief of BYC, said the everyday contact in the workplace did not lead to the spread of STD, one of the reasons behind the exams.


Zhanqing further pointed that most STD did not affect civil servants' work.


Wu Mingjiang, vice-chairperson of the Chinese Medical Association, however, said that the examination has nothing to do with gender discrimination and privacy invasion


"Women may have to receive more examinations than men due to their physical differences," Mingjiang added. (ANI)
