Women's federations in Jiangsu province, east China, have recently been actively exploring practical steps and reform to make full use of their role of "holding up half of the sky" in building a well-off society, according to officials.

As a mass organization led by the Party, women's federations have never forgotten its initial purpose of constantly enhancing its politically progressive nature, and take it as a strong driving force to lead the reform direction, promote development and test the effect of such actions.

Beihuan Xincun Community in Tianning District of Changzhou, Jiangsu, built in the early 1980s with 13,000 inhabitants, has many laid-off women plagued by living difficulties and contradictions and disputes.

Under the leadership of Wang Wenhong, secretary of the Party Committee of the community and the March 8th Red-Banner Pacesetter in Jiangsu, problems have been  settled through the activity of morality lectures, during which model residents share their stories.

The activity has actively promoted the construction of spiritual civilization in the community and achieved positive results.

This year, the March 8th Red-Banner Pacesetter Studio established by Wang has actively played a leading role in promoting the party's spiritual publicity work by publicizing the spirit of the Party to residents through various forms, and bringing them together to solve problems.

In addition, the studio has also especially carried out brand-specific activities and special convenience service projects to better serve women and children in the community, which has greatly improved the comprehensive management level of the community.

The women's federation of Xiaowu Village in Jiawang District of Xuzhou initiated a lecture on August 9 to teach locals knowledge about entrepreneurship, tutoring, and rights protection through actual examples, helping women to achieve development and contribute during the rural revitalization campaign.

Since the first half of the year, Changzhou has completed more than 420 such lectures, and Xuzhou Women's Federation has carried out various types of education to benefit 30,000 people. Such activities have been conducted at more than 6,269 sessions in the province.

Willow weaving is the traditional competitive industry in Zhenghong Town, Binhai County in the city of Yancheng. According to Gao Yaguo, president of Binhai Women's Federation, in order to further implement the Women's Entrepreneurship Project and help women to start a business, the county has established the Female Field Lecture to organize handcraft training for people especially farmers on low-incomes and rural unemployed women.

At present, Zhenghong Town has established three schools to provide willow weaving training. Nearly 1,000 households are training for this craft, and 70 percent of the trainees are women. In 2017, Zhenghong Town has achieved sales of 40 million yuan, with 2,000 women employed.

Mazhuang is a village located in Pan'an Lake Scenic Area in Xuzhou City with a rich  folk cultural heritage, especially a long history of folk fabric production. In order to make full use of the advantages of its geographic location, the village women's federation has trained a group of intangible cultural heritage experts to offer classes of sewing sachets to help local women learn the craft and lift them out of poverty.

According to statistics, more than 710 women are employed in the scheme with an average annual income of more than 26,000 yuan, with their sachets sold across the country through online and offline channels.

Women are an important force in promoting the modernization of agriculture and rural areas. They are not only the beneficiaries of rural revitalization, but also promoters and builders.

In order to solve the financial problems of women's entrepreneurship and employment from the policy level, women's federation at all levels have actively coordinated with departments regarding local finance, banking, poverty alleviation work teams and agricultural committees to secure loans and interest subsidies for women.

According to statistics, in the past three years, Jiangsu has issued a total of 4.869 billion yuan in guarantee loans for urban and rural women's enterprises, supporting more than 50,000 women to start a business.

Some 1,617 small and micro-enterprises led by women have received 823 million yuan in financial interest loans. There have been 1,240 demonstration bases of various types established in the province, and 20 million yuan of support funds distributed to encourage 75,000 women to start businesses.

In order to build a stronger position for women-specific work and lead women to contribute wisdom and strength to the construction of Jiangsu, Jiangsu Women's Federation has also come up with a work brand and action logo "On Your Side" among women's federations at all levels to “harness the power of social organization”.
