She visited children from poverty-stricken families and those whose parents lived in large cities as migrant workers and had left their offspring in the care of their grandparents, or left-behind children, ahead of International Children's Day on June 1.

Huang also inspected the work of women's federations in villages, communities and enterprises. When meeting the heads and executive committee members of the federations, she stressed that this year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China and urged motivating of women to actively participate in the celebrations with various forms and play their role in promoting affection for home and the country.
In a memorial hall built to honor Red Sisters-in-Law who had helped the soldiers led by the Communist Party of China (CPC) fight against Japanese aggression, Huang was touched by their stories of the past, saying that the Red Sisters-in-Law spirit is a vivid example to educate and guide women to persevere in following the Party's leadership.
