BEIJING, Mar 14 (Xinhua): The high incidence of school shootings, widespread school violence and lack of effective government oversight of child abuse has threatened children in the United States physically and mentally, said the Human Rights Record of the United States in 2018 released by China on Thursday.
"Their living environment is worrisome," said the report released by the Information Office of the State Council.
The report noted that school shootings frequently occurred in the United States and the problem of school violence is prominent.
US children suffer from serious threats of abuse. According to statistics from US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated one in four children in America experienced maltreatment at some point in their lives.
The report also said that the U.S. government neglected the protection of children's rights and children are suffering from poverty.
Meanwhile, US women faced severe threat in terms of sexual harassment and sexual assault, with personal safety in lack of protection, said the Human Rights Record of the United States in 2018 released by China on Thursday.
They also faced obvious discrimination in employment and in workplace, said the report released by the Information Office of the State Council.
