Introduction: the origin of the Gender Equity Education Act
  According to Article 6 of the Gender Equity Education Act, the school shall establish a gender equity education committee. The Act came into being from a boy's death. (The following story is summarized from Wikipedia [Traditional Chinese]: Yeh Yong-zi [葉永鋕])
   Yeh Yong-zi (April 20, 2000), male, was a 9th grader in Gao-Shu Junior High School in Pingtung County. In the morning of April 20 in 2000, after he left the classroom to the toilet, he was found unconscious and bloodied on the ground and died soon afterwards in the hospital. His death is believed to be involved with his gender temperament, and has profoundly influenced gender equity education in Taiwan.
   Yeh's case highlights the campus violence perpetrated upon students of gender temperaments different from social expectations; this has induced legislators to rename the drafted Sex Equity Education Act into the Gender Equity Education Act, with clearly defined wording: "…shall not discriminate against… on the basis of his or her gender, gender temperament, gender identity or sexual orientation."
   The Gender Equity Education Committee of National Chengchi University endeavors to achieve campus-wide gender equity in various fields to cultivate NCCU faculty, staff and students and thus prevent gender bias and sexual discrimination.
