Shen stressed that 2014 is a year for promoting comprehensive deepening reform, and that they should focus on the top-level, while respecting the creative spirit of the grassroots. She continued that they should not only focus on the promotion of Party committees and governments, but also fully mobilize the majority of women through publicity and education guidance so that people can truly understand, support and actively join in the reform. Shen added that it is important to co-ordinate economic and social development and improving people's livelihoods, with particular emphasis on solving prominent environmental issues and paying close attention to the interests of poor people, so that more equitable reform development outcomes benefit the masses.
Shen further stressed that they should try harder to make women understand that the reforms are closely related to them and to solve their practical difficulties, with particular focus on solving problems such as female students' employment, impoverished rural women's rights, plight of left-behind and migrant women and children.
Members of the women's federations group of the ongoing second session of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) expressed their points of view on issues involving women's development and the protection of their legal rights under current social circumstances at a press meeting held at the Beijing Conference Center in Beijing on March 7, 2014.
