China on Thursday issued a report on the United States' human rights condition, criticizing that the situation for American women are deteriorating and children are living in worrisome environment.
The report, titled "Human Rights Record of the United States in 2015," was published by the State Council Information Office.
The percentage of women in poverty increased from 12.1 percent to 14.5 percent over the past decade, the report says, adding that the United States was the only industrialized nation with no overall law for cash benefits provided to women during maternity leave.
A total of 23 percent of undergraduate women said they were victims of non-consensual sexual contact, according to the report.
The document says there were at least two school shootings a month in 2015 and almost two children were killed every week in unintentional shootings. About a quarter of the teenagers above 15 years old who died of injuries in the U.S. were killed in gun-related incidents.
Also, about 17.4 million children under the age of 18 were being raised without a father and 45 percent lived below the poverty line. About one fifth of all U.S. children lived in food-insecure households, the document says.
