Victor Gevers is researcher at the organization, the GDI Foundation and found the data by accident when he did searches in open databases in China, writes The Guardian. The database, which is in English, contains extensive personal information for more than 1.8 million women in relation to, inter alia, age, education, marital status, address, and a column with the title ”BreedReady”, which can be to describe whether a woman has children or is of child-bearing age.
in the database was 32 years of age, the youngest was 15 and almost 90 percent were listed as: single, divorced or widowed. Eight of the ten were from Beijing.
What the database will be used for is unclear. Similarly, who has created it. Victor Gevers has not yet been able to identify if it is a dating site or an organization or the state is behind this.
A concern, not least from women's rights organisations, is that it is the chinese regime that has figured fertile women.
China's one child policy has done to the country today has a surplus of men and a declining birth rate. In some places, it goes to the two men on a woman and the state is concerned that it is born to get child to take care of an increasingly growing proportion of older people.
contacted some of whose pages are linked to the database in order to find out if they had registered the information. No one was aware that their tasks were out there on the internet completely open. Some were shocked and felt that it was a variant of the tv series ”The Handmaid's Tale” where women are forced to bear children.
”such A database is very daunting. The fact that the series as the Handmaid's Tale exists is a sign that we are already there,” writes a user, according to The Guardian.
the Others were not surprised: ”to tell you the truth, this type of data are everywhere,” writes another user.
Victor Gevers look seriously at that sensitive information is completely open on the internet.
"Our main focus is to become secured as soon as possible," he says to The Guardian.
