They have implemented full-coverage educational activities with multiple forms by making full use of various traditional media and new media platforms among the general public at various levels based on Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.
When he met the new leadership of the ACWF, President Xi explained that it is necessary to uphold the basic State policy of gender equality and safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of women and children.
To fulfill this purpose, BWF has taken the spirit of the 12th NWC as its guideline, promoted positive values, and continuously expressed its position on various new media platforms to promote gender equality.
