报告摘要】

This paper explores the implement of compulsory schooling law in China to investigate the causal impact of education on women’s likelihood of experiencing domestic violence. The local average treatment effects obtained through instrument variable indicate that one additional year of schooling lowers the women’s possibility of being beaten or forced sexual intercourse by 6.5 %. Also, the effects are significantly stronger for rural subsample and females with nine years or less. Further, we examine a profile of associated outcomes and run reduce form estimations to explore possible mechanisms through which education matters. We find that education improvement has significantly better social and economic status of women. In addition, evidence suggests that changes in attitudes towards gender identity in total are significant and can interpret around 33.3% of the overall reducing effect.
