The 12th Executive Committee of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) held the second plenary meeting of its first session in Beijing on November 3 to convey and study the remarks made by Chinese President Xi Jinping after he met the federation's new leadership.

Speaking on November 2, President Xi, also general-secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and chairman of the Central Military Commission, stressed the importance of upholding the socialist path with Chinese characteristics for women's development and mobilizing women to make achievements.

ACWF president Shen Yueyue, who is also vice-chairperson of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, attended the meeting, which was presided over by vice-president and first member of the Secretariat of the ACWF Huang Xiaowei. At the plenary meeting, attendees also confirmed overall arrangements for the implementation of objectives and tasks set forth by the 12th National Women's Congress of China (NWC), which was held from October 30-November 2 in the capital.

Shen said the keynote speech by President Xi on the occasion outlined the fundamental requirements of the CPC Central Committee towards its work on women's affairs; specified responsibilities, missions and major tasks of the work on women's affairs in the new era; provided the reform of women's federations with clear goals and directions; and elevated the Party's understanding of the rules of the work on women's affairs to a higher level.

As a master plan to guide the development of women's affairs in the new era, President Xi's speech has provided the ACWF with a general direction in better accomplishing the work on women's affairs in the new era, Shen continued.

She urged women's federations at all levels to prioritize their study, publicity and implementation of the keynote speech and to make full use of its spirit in unifying their minds and advancing relevant work in the future.

Shen emphasized that women's federations should closely follow President Xi's latest speech and his other important remarks concerning the consolidation of the CPC's leadership over them, its work on family affairs, and the completion of reform work in a drive to translate the objectives and tasks outlined by the 12th NWC into reality.

Specifically, women's federations should rally women from every section of the society to better act on Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era and unite around the Party.

They should also devote themselves to the national campaign on poverty eradication, the national strategy of rural vitalization, and the building of a social governance model based on collaboration, participation and the common interests; meet women's rising demand for a better and beautiful life; and, attach more attention to the improvement of the lives of disadvantaged women.

Furthermore, they should facilitate their work on family-oriented ethical progress and family education and the popularity of core socialist values; stick to the Party's leadership; and, deepen their own reform.

Shen explained that women's federations should promote political advancement and strengthen the building of their executive committees.

Meanwhile, members of the executive committees of federations must take the lead in improving their personal political awareness, continuing studies, undertaking their own missions and duties, building connections among women and serving them, abiding by disciplinary rules, and living up to the great trust of the CPC Central Committee and the expectations of hundreds of millions of women across the country.

For their part, all the members of the 12th Executive Committee of the ACWF took part in a panel discussion at the event and shared their feelings on learning about the keynote speech given by President Xi.

Those present at the plenary meeting included Zhang Xiaolan, Cheng Hong, Xia Jie, Tan Lin, Cao Shumin, Yu Yanhong, Wu Haiying, Shi Dai, Song Yushui, Liu Yang, Chen Hualan and Meng Man, all of whom are vice-presidents of the ACWF; Zhao Wen, Cai Shumin and Zhang Dongmei, who are members of the ACWF's Secretariat; and, chiefs of different departments as well as affiliated institutions of the ACWF.
