The initiative was organized in response to calls from the government, following statements by officials that describe how family virtues play a vital role in household construction.
Thus, the federation has made great efforts to create a good atmosphere for reading, vigorously promote the establishment of family culture and proactively guided women and children to carry out core socialist values, according to a spokesperson.
Single mother Shi Meijing previously faced difficulties over family disputes and child-rearing. Since participating in a reading event, she has gradually become a reading enthusiast and regained her confidence.
Now Shi has become a volunteer in Nankai District and set up a community service station.
Recently, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television and a group from Tianjin recently co-organized an event to promote reading among the public.
Staff of Nankai Women's Federation invited representatives from the Looking for the Most Beautiful Family, Peaceful Family and Civilized Family campaigns to write about household virtues, stories and mottoes which were sent in books to families and children.
Through various reading methods, the activity aimed to enable more people to form regular reading habits.
To motivate more families to have a better understanding of and inherit traditional family culture, officials selected the book Fine Family Virtues in Tianjin and chose to promote it widely.
Other preferred titles include Master Chu's Homilies for Families, Clean and Honest Family Letters and Tribulation and Glory.
Meanwhile, Nankai Women's Federation gave out some 4,000 books to students in kindergartens, primary schools and middle schools.
Zhang Xiaobei, president of Nankai Women's Federation, said that federations should enable women to promote reading among the public and in households thereby passing down positive virtues and civility.
