The All-China Women's Federation held a gathering attended by Chinese women from various circles and foreign diplomats on Tuesday ahead of International Women's Day (March 8).

Vice-Premier Liu Yandong attended the celebrating event.

The federation has carried out the decisions made by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and pushed forward reform to better serve women over the past year, said the federation's president Shen Yueyue in a speech.

Shen, who is also vice chair of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature, said the federation will unify and lead the country's women to follow the Party and make new contributions to welcome the 19th CPC National Congress, slated for later this year.

China is willing to work together with women worldwide in building a community of shared future, she added.
More than 1,000 people were present at the event to observe International Women's Day on March 8.
