Shen Yueyue, Vice-Chairperson of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress and President of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), had a meeting with officials of the women's federations at all levels in Northeast China's Jilin Province, on September 25, when she was making an inspection tour in the province.
Shen stressed that officials of the women's federations needed to thoroughly implement the guidance given in the speeches of General Secretary Xi Jinping in order to better serve the overall interests and women around the country, and to unite and lead women to follow the Party and contribute more in the new era.
Officials and members of the executive committee of the women's federations at various levels in Jilin Province briefed their work in rural vitalization, poverty alleviation, family building, development of grassroots-level women's federations, protection of women's rights and promotion of entrepreneurship and innovation.
Shen said that under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, the status of women in China has undergone tremendous changes over the past 70 years. Since the 18th CPC National Congress, under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core and the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics in New Era, hundreds of millions of Chinese women have played their important role in integrating the realization of their own dreams into the realization of the great dream of the nation.
Shen stressed that the women's federations should focus on women's needs and make efforts in improving women's livelihood, promoting employment and entrepreneurship, caring for the elderly and children, and helping women solve their problems. The workers of the women's federations were also required to increase abilities to better serve and guide women to have better lives and contribute more to the nation.
During her inspection, Shen also visited farmer households to learn about their work, daily life, housing conditions and the issues about raising children and safe drinking water.
