The president of the women's federation in southwest China's Yunnan Province, He Hongmei, delivered a speech at an event on September 18 in which she spoke about issues surrounding family education and its ongoing significance.

Around 400 audience members gathered at the event to listen to the lecture titled "Yunnan Women and Family Education".

In her talk, the official said that for Chinese people nowadays, the pursuit for harmony in their family is greater than the need to chase after material possessions.

She also referred back to famous figures and anecdotes in history to state her point. "The Chinese historian Sima Guang laid much emphasis on self-discipline and self-reliance in educating his children. Moreover, the predecessors of the China's revolution, Chairman Mao for instance, set up various principles on family life." "Premier Zhou also established his 10 family principles, and politician Chen Yun raised his 'three don'ts' in family education," added He.

"Family education is worth learning. It plays a vital role in building family ties and it is closely connected to the fate of our nation." The women's leader further emphasized the strong connection among families, people and the nation and urged that those present should implement the spirit of President Xi Jinping's recent remarks on family life.

Finally, she encouraged everyone to make further efforts to build a "beautiful and harmonious Yunnan."
