Group members of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) have shown great concern to the latest development of the novel coronavirus epidemic, fulfilled their social responsibilities, and given full play to women in assisting the nationwide battle against the virus in response to a proposal issued by the ACWF on January 26.
The ACWF urged women from all walks of life to give full play to their unique roles in social and family life, and contribute to the prevention and control of the novel coronavirus.
Both the ACWF and the China Medical Women's Association have sent letters to frontline female medical workers to convey respect, greetings and gratitude for their selfless sacrifices since the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic in Wuhan, the capital city of Central China's Hubei Province.
The China Association of Women Entrepreneurs has urged its members, especially those from Wuhan and surrounding areas, to support the preventative measures taken by local governments, act on official recommendations on the prevention and control of the novel coronavirus, and assume their social responsibilities.
