The All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) started its appraisal work recently to recognize outstanding female role models in various industries across the country.

Thirty women will be named as National March 8th Red-banner Holders award winners this year through public recommendations.

The annual awards have been organized by ACWF since 1960. To date, around 35,000 women from all segments of society have been presented with the honorary title.

Before 2015, the honorees were chosen from recommendations by women's federations at all levels. More recently, the ACWF has started honoring exceptional role models by holding a public poll.

This year, the organization will continue to use this method to award outstanding women nationwide.

Those who meet the requirements are welcome to fill in a registration form online before November 20.

The following photos show many of previous notable National 8th Red-banner Holders.
