Default CHINA: Submissiveness School For Women Closed

BBC

Quote:
Chinese authorities have shut down an institute that was teaching women to be obedient and subordinate to men.

The education bureau said the institute, which claimed it taught "traditional virtues", had violated socialist core values.

An online video showed lecturers speaking out against gender equality, while other advice to women included not fighting back when being beaten.

China has seen a rise in similar institutes in recent years.

The viral video posted by news website Pear Video shows teachers at the Fushun School of Traditional Culture telling women they should not attempt to have a career but "just stay at the bottom level".

It urges women to unconditionally obey their fathers, husbands and sons.

Other "advice" from the controversial school included never arguing when scolded and never divorcing.

The teachers are also seen warning that if a woman has sex with more than three men, the semen becomes poisonous and might kill her.

It's great that it has been shut down, but it took 6 frigging years to come to attention?

According to the Global Times newspaper, several employees of the institute, which reportedly opened in 2011, protested against its closure, telling the paper the controversial video was a misrepresentation of their work to promote traditional culture.
A post on the Weibo account of the local education bureau in Fushun said "the institute's teachings went against social morality and must be closed immediately".

@SEG: I don't know the process of reporting over there, but it might have needed an official, evidence-supported complaint.

I think we could all name one or two abusive establishments which have flourished in Oz for years.

Um, like The Church of Scientology? How they allegedly pressured women in Australia into having abortions?

It amazed me how easily they gained their tax exempt status in Australia - From Wiki:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientology_in_Australia

Quote:
The Church of Scientology requested a tax exemption from wages originating from a religious institution based on the Victoria Pay-roll Tax Act 1971. The High Court asked the question on whether Scientology was to be accepted as a religion, and decided that they were. Scientology met the two criteria that they stipulated for the determination of whether an organization is religious; first “belief in a supernatural Being, Thing or Principle” and second, “the acceptance of canons of conduct in order to give effect to that belief
