Monica Geingos, wife of Namibian President, Hage Geingob, visited China Women's University (CWU), in Beijing, on March 30, 2018. Geingos made the visit to CWU while she and her husband were making a State visit to China.

At CWU, Geingos attended a ceremony, during which she received the title of honorary professor from the university. Xia Jie, Vice-President and Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, met the First Lady at CWU.

In her speech during the ceremony, Geingos said she was honored to be a professor with CWU, a Chinese women's university with a long history and unique charm. She highlighted the theme of "knowledge represents a power that changes one's life," and she shared her views on "how to choose a partner, how to develop one's career, how to eliminate gender stereotypes and how to become the First Lady of Namibia."

She also pointed out that education not only spreads knowledge, but also changes women's destinies. She outlined her country's efforts in advancing women's empowerment, and in advancing equality between men and women. She also communicated with CWU's students, and she encouraged them to study hard and make their own contributions to the development of society and women's undertakings.

CWU's president, Liu Liqun, presided over the ceremony and delivered a speech. Li Mingshun, secretary of the university's CPC (Communist Party of China) committee, presented an honorary professor's certificate to Geingos.
