Expounding the important proposition of protecting womens rights and interests: must rise to the will of the state
1. Help women get rid of the impact of the epidemic.
We should pay attention to the physical health, social psychological needs and working environment of front-line female medical workers.
The protection of womens and girls rights and interests should be placed in an important position in public health and the plan for returning to work and giving birth again. In particular, womens employment channels should be widened and violations of womens rights and interests should be combated.
2. Implement gender equality.
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.

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.
It is necessary to remove obstacles, create an environment, 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.
4. Strengthen global cooperation in womens cause.
We support the United Nations to give priority to womens work, increase investment in eliminating violence, discrimination, poverty and other old issues, and do something to address new challenges such as the gender digital divide, so as to make womens goals the early harvest of the 2030 agenda.
