Chinese President Xi Jinping delivered an important speech at the 25th anniversary high level conference of the World Conference on women in Beijing at the UN General Assembly 1.

Xi Jinping stressed that in the past 25 years, the spirit of the World Conference on women in Beijing has been giving rise to positive changes. Womens social status has been significantly improved, and the role of half the sky has become increasingly prominent. Gender equality and womens empowerment have become important goals of the UN 2030 agenda for sustainable development. The novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic is spreading all over the world, and women are facing greater challenges. In the process of fighting the epidemic and promoting economic and social recovery, we should pay special attention to the special needs of women and implement the Beijing Declaration and platform for action.

Xi Jinping put forward 4 points.

Second, make gender equality come true. The protection of womens rights and interests must be raised to the will of the state. We should take the post epidemic recovery as an opportunity to provide new opportunities for womens political participation and improve their participation in the management of state, economic, cultural and social affairs. It is necessary to eliminate prejudice, discrimination and violence against women and make gender equality a code of conduct and value standard to be followed by the whole society.

Third, we should promote women to be at the forefront of the times. We should uphold the protection of womens rights and interests in development, improve womens livelihood through development, and realize the synchronous development of womens undertakings and economic and social development. We should maximize the enthusiasm, initiative and creativity of women and enhance their sense of gain, happiness and security. We should give full play to the role of the government, mobilize social forces extensively, and support and help women enjoy a brilliant life.

Xi Jinping emphasized that equality between men and women is Chinas basic national policy. China has established a comprehensive legal system to protect womens rights and interests, including more than 100 laws and regulations. The gender gap in compulsory education has been basically eliminated, and more than 40% of the employed people are women. Five years ago, I proposed to hold a global womens summit and put forward a series of global cooperation initiatives, which have been fully implemented. We will continue to increase our support for womens cause all over the world. China proposes to hold another global womens summit in 2025.

Finally, Xi Jinping pointed out that building a world free of discrimination against women is still a long way to go to build a inclusive society. Let us continue to work together to accelerate the realization of gender equality and promote the development of womens cause in the world.
