Officials in northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region convened a celebration meeting on September 20 to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the region.

On behalf of the attendees, Zhao Naixiang, part-time vice-president of Ningxia Women's Federation (NWF), delivered a speech during the activity.

In an interview with China Women's News, Zhao said: "It is my great honor to speak at such an important event."

With backing from the Central Commitee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core, NWF has led women in the region to start from scratch and achieved success over the past six decades.

Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, the women's federations in Ningxia have carried out reform, adding momentum to local development.

Providing Better Services

NWF has paid attention to keeping in close contact with women and worked to provide better services for them.

After the reform, the number of members of executive committees of women's federations at township and village levels increased to 44,000, 20 times more than before.

Now, increasing numbers of citizens have chosen to ask for help from local women's federations.

"I am a senior Party member, and I want to do something for society after my retirement," Su Juzhen, an executive committee member of a local women's federation in Yinchuan city, said. "I am mainly responsible for settling domestic disputes."

"I am very pleased to provide such services to women in the area," Su added.

Wu Huizhen, part-time vice president of Shizuishan (a city in Ningxia) Women's Federation, established a studio to promote good family traditions among citizens.

With A-level services, it has earned high praise from the public.

Organizational Reform

Over the past few years, NWF has focused on the construction of local women's federations and the transformation of women's committees to women's federations.

Through the reform, there are now female officials in township and village administrative organs, and all presidents of township and village women's federations work in local Party and government agencies and village committees. All these women's federations are financially backed and Women's Homes have been established in all the villages in the region.

Ma Wenjuan, president of NWF, told reporters that they have completed their mission of leading women to follow the pace of the Party, helped women innovate and start up businesses, taken part in social governance, and aroused women's enthusiasm for promoting the Rural Vitalization Strategy.

"We have also enhanced women's happiness and sense of safety, increased their engagement in social development, boosted their recognition of women's federations, and improved women's federations' working style," Ma added.

Building a Beautiful Ningxia

To publicize the spirit of Xi Jingping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era among local people, NWF organized over 4,000 publicity activities in the region and made full use of social media.

It also issued a loan of over 9 billion yuan which helped 176,200 women start up businesses.

The federation has established some Women's Entrepreneurship and Innovation Bases, Poverty Alleviation Workshops, and Women Handiwork Studios which injected momentum into poverty alleviation.

Officials also raised a fund of 9 million to help cure those diagnosed with cervical and breast cancers.

To prevent domestic violence and protect women's legitimate rights and interests, NWF urged local government to roll out relevant supportive policies and set up several assistance centers in the region.

It also organized activities to promote good family traditions in sites like government agencies, communities, schools, and enterprises.
