Annotation :::: The paper focuses on administrative culture and problems faced by women, and considers the significance of protecting the rights of women migrants in the Three Gorges area as well as the responsiveness of public policies. Using the methods of documental study and field research, the paper finds that women migrants are a particularly disadvantaged group among migrants in the Three Gorges area. Women’s rights should be viewed as human rights, rather than privileges. The rights of women migrants need the support of public policies, and also broader attention in society given that they have lost some of their legal rights and benefits in the course of migration. Both government and society should consider the role of women migrants in the stabilization and development of the Three Gorges area, and initiate a positive public policy response to protect their rights so as to promote the economic development of the Three Gorges area and overall development of society. The paper is part of the Hubei Provincial Social Sciences Foundation project directed by Professor Liu Xiaohong, numbered 2005/008 and titled “The Survival and Development Situation and Protection of Rights and Interests of Women and Children Emigrants in the Three Gorges Region"
