The Chinese Women's Research Society (CWRS) held its annual meeting in Beijing from December 13-14. President of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) Shen Yueyue attended the opening ceremony and delivered a speech.

The event aimed to help participants conscientiously study and implement the important remarks made by Chinese President Xi Jinping on women and women's work and implement the spirit of the 12th National Women's Congress (NWC).

The event focused on the development needs of women's causes in the new era, summarized women’s development outcomes made in both theory and practice over the past 40 years, and promoted the innovative development of women's work.

Shen, who is also the president of the CWRS, said researchers should consciously use Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era to guide women's studies and popularize the spirit of Xi's important speech so as to ensure women's research aligns with the right political direction.

Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), President Xi has used Marxist positions, viewpoints and methods in answering some key questions involved in women's causes and women's work in a new historical context and put forward a series of innovative ideas and judgments, remarked Shen.

Xi met the new leadership of the ACWF recently following the closing ceremony of the 12th NWC and delivered a speech which is the guideline on the development of women's affairs in the new era.

In order to better implement the keynote speech and grasp its core meaning, Shen put forward several requirements for all participants.

First, researchers should understand that women's causes are an important part of the undertaking of the Party and the Chinese people and integrate women's research work with the development of the Party and the nation.

Second, they should firmly follow the leadership of the CPC Central Committee and enhance the consciousness of the need to maintain political integrity, think in big-picture terms, follow the leadership core and keep in alignment.

They should also strengthen the confidence in the path, theory, system and culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

In addition, they should resolutely uphold the authority of the CPC Central Committee and its centralized, unified leadership with Comrade Xi at its core and closely follow the Committee in terms of its thinking, political orientation and actions.

Third, they should make full use of the unique role of women in promoting traditional Chinese virtues and developing positive family traditions to further research challenges and problems in families' development in the new era.

Shen explained that people should summarize the achievements made during the theoretical research and practical development of women in socialism with Chinese characteristics and devote efforts to construct a theoretical system to develop women's causes.

People should also implement the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress and carry out the tasks put forward at the 12th NWC so as to better serve women.

Shen said the CWRS should make full use of its leading role in politics, values and academics to promote the innovative development of women's studies in the new era.

Huang Xiaowei, vice-president and first member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, presided over the opening ceremony. She suggested scholars should study the spirit of Xi's speech and use scientific research results to serve the Party and women as well as the reform of federations according to Shen's requirements.

During the event, Tan Lin, vice-president and member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, and also deputy-director of the CWRS, and Meng Man, part-time vice-president of the ACWF and professor of the School of History and Country at Minzu University of China, delivered speeches.

Peng Peiyun, former vice-chairperson of the National People's Congress Standing Committee and former president of the ACWF, also attended the gathering.
