There is a saying from Mencius, ‘Expend the respect of the aged in one’s family to that of other families; expend the love of the young ones in one’s family to that of other families.’

The elder and the young, the vulnerable in the society, need more protection. Therefore, it is also the mission of the United Nations since its inception that we should heed to and support them and build a more amiable international community.

Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM) in Beijing International Model United Nations 2017 will focus on the rights of girls and the status of women in an aging society. We are more than concerned about the prejudices and harassments faced by girls from birth all over the world, the discrimination and challenges they face in their growing-up, and the new problems that women face in employment and retirement in the process of aging.

To protect the rights of girls and to care for women in an aging society, the United Nations is in action.
