Tangshan stripped of national honor after gang attack on women

Security graphics depicting scenes of the incident were posted on social media earlier this month, sparking national outcry and sparking heated online discussions about the safety and rights of women in China.

The women were having dinner together in the northern city of Tangshan at about 2:40 a.m. local time on June 10 when a man approached and touched her, before slapping her when she objected.

The woman’s friends tried to help her, followed by a group of men who stormed into the restaurant and attacked them.

The images show how various women are beaten by their hair on the floor, kicked, grabbed and dragged.

Nine men were arrested over the violent incident, while several women were taken to hospital.

Now Chinese media reports that Tangshan has been removed from the government’s list of “National Civilized Cities”.

Created in 2005, the award is given to cities based on their general development, their environment and their appeal to outsiders.

The title is normally revised once every three years, but was removed from Tangshan early on after it was last awarded to the city in 2020.

“The honor of a civilized city belongs to all citizens and cannot be smeared or violated,” the state-run China City News said.

“All sectors of society must cherish and collectively protect the goodwill of civilization and the warmth of the city.

“When faced with so many problems, Tangshan clearly did not show the warmth of a civilized city.”
