A symposium titled, 'Theoretical Basis of the Values of Gender Equality', was organized in Beijing from May 19-20, 2014.
Chen Zhili, vice-chairperson of the Standing Committee of the 11th National People's Congress and former president of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), gave a speech at the symposium.
Chen pointed out that it is of great importance to further research the concept of the values of gender equality, analyze their relationship with the core values of Chinese socialism and explore ways to publicize the values of equality between men and women.
The values of gender equality, conforming to the objective laws of social development, represented the general trend of equal development and participation in the economy and society between men and women, emphasized the official.
Chen also emphasized the further exploration of effective values of gender equality so as to promote their all-round development.
The theoretical basis, the publicity and the construction of the values of gender equality are all priorities to be discussed at the conference.
Participants believed that it is complicated to engineer a system to cultivate and implement the core values of Chinese socialism, requiring all members of society to work together.
Over 50 experts and scholars from the Women's Studies Institute of China, Communication University of China, Hebei University and Peking University, as well as other institutes of higher learning across the country attended the conference.
Tan Lin, member of the Secretariat of the ACWF and director of Women's Studies Institute of China, presided over the event.
