On Oct. 24 an open class named "Gender education" was held in a third-grade class of a primary school affiliated to University of Shanghai for science and technology. Children, parents, heads of education departments and the media attended the class to experience the whole process of sex education. Such an open class is very rare in China.

This class, which lasted for about 35 minutes, was aimed at helping pupils to distinguish friendly behaviors from offensive acts, increasing their ability to protect themselves.
