To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations (UN), as well as the 20th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing in 1995, China and UN Women jointly held a Summit on Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment at the UN headquarters in New York on September 27.

The landmark event was chaired by Chinese President Xi Jinping. At the meeting, President Xi made a four-point proposal on women's rights worldwide that included: striving for women's development in tandem with social and economic progress; protecting women's rights and interests; jointly building harmonious and inclusive societies; and fostering a global environment conducive to women's development.

Xi also announced a U.S. $10 million donation to UN Women to help with the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and the realization of related goals in the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

Just as the path to world peace is not a smooth one, women's development also has to face new challenges in the process of seizing new opportunities. The kick-off of the summit not only opens up a new realm for women's development around the world, but also points out a direction and gives a new impetus for women's/gender studies in the future. We should learn from President Xi's speech at the summit to promote women's studies and make contributions to the cause of gender equality across the globe.

The author, Researcher Ding Juan, is director of the International Office of the Women's Studies Institute of China affiliated to the All-China Women's Federation.
