Shen called on local women's federation to thoroughly study Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era; to carry out the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC); to implement Xi's important instructions on in-depth research and improvement of working style; and, to lead rural construction, take targeted measures and better serve local women.
"What forms of promotion do local women like the best? Is there any delegate of the Congress who came here to publicize the Party's spirit?" asked Shen, when she communicated face-to-face with local residents at the village of Xiaoqiao, near Nanchang.
Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era is the banner to lead the people. Officials from women's federations at all levels should actively publicize the spirit of the Congress and help local women remember its core content," added Shen.

At the pomelo growing demonstration base of Daping village in Suichuan county, Shen stressed that the ultimate goal of socialism is to achieve common prosperity. She encouraged women's federations to embrace more female talents and leaders into the organization and help more women out of poverty.
Women's federation reform is about changing its form and establishing a long-term mechanism to better serve local women, said Shen to Cheng Lanying, president of the women's federation at Gaosheng village, in Suichuan .
Shen brought goods and materials valued at 5 million yuan (U.S.$ 794,000) and paid her condolences to impoverished women.
Shen enquired about the health and life of Xie Zhaoxiang, a bedridden woman in Gaosheng; urged her to take good care of herself; and reassured her that she could go to local women's federation for help anytime.
"I would be dead without the Party. Thanks for the policy support as well as our great president Xi Jinping," praised Xie.

Shen encouraged women's federations at all levels to study and implement the essence of the 19th CPC National Congress in the coming years; to steadfastly safeguard the core status of Xi in the CPC Central Committee and the whole Party; and, closely unite local women in the surroundings of the Party and central government.
Shen urged women's federations at all levels to highlight their features and make earnest efforts to develop Rural Revitalization and Women's Poverty Alleviation campaigns; to improve rural women's overall quality and build targeted poverty reduction platforms in cooperation with female entrepreneurs, executive committee members and other outstanding women; and, to expand the Looking for Most Beautiful Family campaign to help local women build more ecological and livable villages.
