President of Henan Women's Federation Gao Xiuju and Vice-President Lu Na headed officials to conduct a special investigation into the reform work of the local women's federation in Anyang, central China's Henan Province, from November 10-11.

As part of the tour, the investigating team held a forum with local officers to discuss solutions of improving cadres' working style, enhancing the connection with local women's social organizations and promoting the working capability of women's federations in towns and villages. Gao urged women's federations at various levels to study the spirit of the 6th plenary session of the 18th Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and the 10th Congress of Party representatives of Henan Province, encouraging officials to push forward reform and innovation, leading the ideological and political education, and guiding women to follow the instructions of the Party.

Later, the delegation visited a factory of a local clothing company built over 10 working bases and assisting more than 200 impoverished women from neighboring villages, helping each of them earn over 2,000 yuan (U.S.$ 289) a month. Gao expressed affirmation of the President of the company Li Yufeng for her dedication to entrepreneurship, and encouraged her to scale up her company, strengthen the construction of a Women's Home Center and the project to find more "smart wives" and help them achieve prosperity, and lead more women to get rid of poverty and become better off.

At some local community service centers, Gao learnt about the working process of women and children's affairs and the construction of women's federations in the communities. The president of the women's federation in Xinxing District also introduced various activities which have been held by female volunteer teams to officials.

During the investigation at the local women and children's activity center, Gao visited the women's occupational training school, household management service center, and enquired about the construction, expenditure guarantee situation, and teachers' and children's daily lives in a kindergarten at the center.

In addition, officials also paid a visit to a practice-training base, Meilin Agricultural Model Garden, in Anyang's Linzhou City, where the delegation learned about current development and the overall planning of the base and the work which has been carried out around women's employment, leading women to start their businesses and cultivating modern professional farmers. President of the Garden Shi Meilin said, "I was unwilling to be a farmer before, but now I decided to take off my high-heeled shoes and learn how to farm," which made Gao fully affirm her spirit of working in earnest and pioneering.

Next, Gao visited Yu Linying, Party secretary of a local village. After learning about her contributions to promoting villagers' collective economy and leading women to find employment without leaving the village, Gao praised Yu's dedicated work and expressed her hope that Yu would continue to make efforts to enrich women's spiritual and cultural life in the village and conduct more activities for villagers.

During the tour, Gao urged women's federations at all levels to strengthen basic-level organization construction in towns and villages and draw on outstanding women to hold posts in local women's federations; conduct various activities with villages and women's home centers; guide women's social organizations to play a role in dealing with women and children's affairs; promote the "smart wives" project and the action of women's poverty alleviation; stimulate women's enthusiasm, initiative and creativity and lead them to build central China into a more flourishing region and establish a moderately prosperous society in all respects.
