In Taiwan

The Sexual Assault Prevention Act, passed in 1997, is the first law that specifically pertains to safeguarding the physical safety of women.  Similarly, The Domestic Violence Prevention Act, passed in 1998, is the first special law in Asia that incorporates protective orders.  With the gradual maturation of legislations with respect to women's safety, women's organizations and governments can begin to collaborate.  The women and child protection services in Taiwan, led by the domestic legal system regarding women's personal safety, are deemed by scholars to be parallel to that in other advanced countries.
