Shen urged the women's federations at all levels to play their role in poverty alleviation, assisting the Party and the government to help women in rural areas get rid of poverty. Women's federations at all levels should learn more about the conditions of poverty-stricken women, focusing on solving the problems related to women's lives, including education, employment and medical care, fostering skill training for women in order to encourage more women to strive for a better life by themselves.

Shen noted that women's federations at all levels should push forward the effective connection between poverty alleviation and rural revitalization, giving full play to women's role in the construction of new socialist countryside. Women's federations at all levels should guide women to revitalize rural areas by developing high-quality, green agricultural products. Women in the countryside should hold the concept of green development in the construction of beautiful countryside and build villages into beautiful and livable areas.
