The Xinjiang Women's Federation recently launched a series of activities to promote the Xinjiang Beauty Project in communities to improve the overall quality of grassroots women in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.
According to the federation, 40 lectures and 12 fashion shows have been held in communities and villages in Hotan Prefecture, Kashgar Prefecture and Kizilsu Kirghiz Autonomous Prefecture over the past few days, attracting about 24,000 local women.
In addition, the federation also invited four experts to give talks to local residents on topics such as patriotism and regional history, marriage and family, women's rights and interests, mental health, parent-child relationships and traditional costumes.
The organizers hope that the activities will inspire Xinjiang women to pursue a healthy lifestyle and improve their quality of life.
In recent years, the Xinjiang Women's Federation has made efforts to showcase and promote local high-quality products. The Xinjiang Beauty Project, launched by the Xinjiang government, encourages grassroots women to participate in social affairs and lead healthy lives and supports the embroidery and ethnic clothing industry by providing special funds, financial aid and small loans for women.
The project consists of a series of activities, including financial aid programs for impoverished women and students. By April 2013, women's federations of all levels in Xinjiang had supported 308 embroidery and weaving associations and established 336 demonstration bases for women's handicrafts, greatly improving women's employment and development.
