The Story

* The First Online Platform to Serve Migrant Women 屬於時代女工的網站
Although there are already a dizzying array of media outlets, most target the middle class, very few are intended for grassroots women and address the issues they face, and none are based online. 

To fill this gap, Jie Mei Web will be the first online site in China that truly serves migrant women with information on gender equality, labor rights, lifestyles and life management, as these are information as relevant and indispensible to them.


* Migrant Women to Hold Up Half The Sky and More 女工撐起半邊天
They are the backbone of China's economy. Despite the harsh conditions they are facing, many of them still try to seek empowerment and solidarity in every possible way.

Jie Mei Web will be a place where they can plant the seeds of empowerment and solidarity and make them grow. From sharing tips of job interviews or best buys in the area, or how to intervene sexual harassment in the workplace, to giving a 'Like' to each other's online talent show, Jie Mei Web is migrant women's foundation of social innovation.
