The law provides protection for
rape victims. Rape trials are not open to
the public unless the victim consents. The
law permits a charge of rape without
requiring the victim to press charges.
The law establishes the punishment for
rape as not less than five years’
imprisonment, and courts usually gave those
convicted prison sentences of five to 10
years. According to the Ministry of Health
and Welfare, as of July there were 8,029
reports filed for rape or sexual assault. As
of July, courts indicted 1,282 persons and
convicted 1,297 persons. According to the
Ministry of Justice, the average prosecution
rate for rape and sexual assault over the
past five years was approximately 50
percent, and the average conviction rate of
cases prosecuted was approximately 90
As of September, authorities prosecuted
1,921 persons for domestic violence and
convicted 1,595 persons. Typically, courts
sentenced persons convicted in domestic
violence cases to less than six months in
prison. Social pressure not to disgrace
their families discouraged abused women from
reporting incidents to the police. The law
allows prosecutors to take the initiative in
investigating complaints of domestic
violence, without waiting for a spouse to
file a formal lawsuit.
The law requires all cities and counties
to establish violence prevention and control
centers to address domestic and sexual

harassment in the workplace is a crime
punishable by fines of NT$100,000 to NT$1

and larger private employers are required to
enact preventive measures and establish

discrimination based on gender. The law
provides for equal treatment with regard to

law entitles women to request up to two
years of unpaid maternity leave and forbids
termination of employment because of
