Taking into consideration of the uniqueness of women's physiological and social roles, women need an external security mechanism to cope with the development difficulties and challenges they face in the process of social transformation and globalization. Women's rights and interest protection law is also a policy design based on this "difference" to a large extent. However, with the development and deepening of the market economy, women's rights and interests have not been promoted, and even to some extent, there is a phenomenon of "poverty" of rights and interests. Taking Zhejiang Province as an example, combined with the policies and regulations of the law on the protection of women's rights and interests, this paper studies the implementation of labor security, maternity insurance, land rights and interests protection of rural women and other benefits of women in Zhejiang Province, and finds that the "weak" position of women in the process of rights and interests protection in the economically developed areas has not been improved. Based on the interpretation of the practice of women's rights and interest protection in developed areas from the perspective of "gender" and "differential politics", this paper holds that coordinated gender development is of great significance for maintaining social justice and building a harmonious society. In the process of achieving coordinated gender development, "difference" is a more important concept than "equality". Women need special social security system to protect their special rights and interests, which reflects our respect for "difference". As a just development, it is to recognize and realize reasonable and appropriate differences, meet and meet the interests of the vast majority of people, and contribute to the improvement of the lives and abilities of the vast majority of people (in principle, all members of society). Therefore, the state and the government should set stronger public policies and implement measures to ensure their right to development to realize women's social values.
