The social recommendation work of selecting National March 8th Red-banner Holders and National March 8th Red-banner Collectives for 2019, the highest honor conferred by the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) on China's outstanding women and women's groups, began recently.
The ACWF will select 30 National March 8 Red-banner Holders from the candidates recommended by the public or through self-applications.
In 2015, for the first time, the ACWF directly crowned 15 National March 8 Red-banner Holders laureates through public recommendations. This move not only further expanded the social participation and brand influence of the selection and commendation activities, but also identified more outstanding women who are deeply recognized and loved by the public and are worthy of the honor.
The number of public recommendations doubled to 30 in 2016, and the ACWF used new media as its main channel to receive the recommendations so as to more widely discover, recommend, select and publicize outstanding women and spread their stories of achieving accomplishments and making contributions.
The presentation of National March 8th Red-banner Holders and National March 8th Red-banner Collectives honorary titles began in 1960. In 2004, the ACWF began the selection of National March 8 Red-banner Pacesetters, the honor for the most excellent women among the March 8th Red-banner Holders. So far, thousands of outstanding women and advanced groups from all walks of life across the country have received the honor.
Since 2016, 30 of the 300 National March 8 Red-banner Holders have come from social recommendations every year. They include Chinese volleyball player Zhu Ting, children's TV program hostess Ju Ping and fashion designer Guo Pei.
