After several months' long search, the 10 'Most Beautiful Families' in Hubei province have been selected. A session to honor these families was held in the Great Hall of the People in Being on June 5.
In this context, "beautiful" doesn't refer to physical attractiveness, but references instead beauty of the mind and spirit, in the hope that this internal beauty is reflected in wider society.
It is understood that the event involved at all levels a total of more than 1,000 families and individuals. Zhang Zhili and another nine families won the "Most Beautiful Family" section.
The 10 families come from all levels of society. Some are regular families from rural areas, while some are foreign families who live in China.
The promotion was in line with a video and telephone conference held by the ACWF in Beijing on February 24, 2014, during which the campaign to find the 'Most Beautiful Families' was officially launched across the country.
The campaign was launched after remarks made by China's President Xi Jinping while he met with the then newly elected ACWF leadership with the aim of implementing key points of the 11th National Women's Congress in late October last year.
