The 2019 Women Leaders Global Forum was held in Reykjavik, capital of Iceland, from November 18-20. Zhao Wen, Member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation, headed the Chinese women's delegation to attend the forum.

The Chinese delegation and the Embassy of China in Iceland organized a luncheon with the theme of "Women, Half of the Sky." During the event, Zhao delivered the keynote speech, during which she outlined the four-point proposal for enhancing women's all-round development, raised by Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Global Leaders' Meeting on Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment in 2015. Zhao explained the Communist Party of China and Chinese Government's efforts to promote gender equality and women's all-round development, as well as Chinese women's great progress since the People's Republic of China (PRC) was founded in 1949. Zhao introduced the Chinese Government's good practices in advancing women's employment and entrepreneurship, improving women's health and in helping women shake off poverty. Jin Zhijian, Chinese ambassador to Iceland, presided over the event.

During the forum, Zhao was invited to speak at a high-level meeting on "National Delegation Responses to the UN Women Call to Action." She outlined Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, the important spirit of the Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC (Communist Party of China) Central Committee and the achievements reached in Chinese women's development since the PRC was founded in 1949. She called on women, from all countries, to enhance communications and cooperation, and to make new contributions to promote gender equality globally and build a community of shared future for mankind. Steingrimur J. Sigfusson, Iceland's Speaker of Parliament, presided over the forum.
