The All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) has played a key role in offering direct assistance to officials in Zhang County in northwest China's Gansu Province, where reform is taking place among grassroots federations.

In order to push forward reform at a steady pace, local federations have been attempting to recruit capable officials in accordance with a set of strict rules and principles.

'3 Breaks and 6 Priorities'

The so-called "Three Breaks" principle refers to breaking administrative boundaries, breaking career barriers, and breaking identity limits.

"Six Priorities" refers to trustworthy officials who can bring benefits in terms of improving women and children's work, welfare projects of public interest, events that promote poverty-relief work, harmonious family virtues and the spreading of positive opinions.

'Seven 100 Percent' Principle

Federation reform in Zhang County is centered on the principle of the so-called "Seven 100 Percent", an official said.

According to the principle, the local Party and government administrative leadership should include all the federation presidents; village-level leadership should include female officials; establish a work scheme to issue grassroots officials' salaries; build Women's Home activity centers among a total of 135 villages; and, make sure each village woman has working expenses of 1 yuan (U.S. 0.15) on average.

Federation Reform

In total, grassroots women's federations have completed their trial reform among two townships and seven villages.

Meanwhile, it is expected the ongoing work of federation reconstruction and elections will be completed by mid-April among another three townships and 17 villages.

Selected Officials

Zhang Caihong, curator of a library in the county, was recently elected as part-time vice-president of the local federation in the township of Sancha.

"This is my great honor to be a federation official in my hometown. I will work hard to live up to the trust and expectation from local women," Zhang said.

"From my point of view, I will encourage women and children with a mobile reading event," Zhang added. She also pledged to launch reading activities such as parent-child reading and holiday reading plans.

Another newly-elected official is Wang Minglan, 32, who will later serve as a local federation's part-time vice-president and member of the executive committee.

Previously, Wang was in charge of a handicrafts workshop which has managed to increase incomes among over 130 local women, with each of them earning 1,000 – 2,000 yuan (U.S.$ 145-290) per month.

"I want to express my sincere thanks to the women's federation and try my best to lead as many as possible to add to their wealth through hard work," Wang remarked.
