On December 26, SWF gathered delegates
to the local Congress and CPPCC at its office to report about SWF's proposals for
the coming plenary sessions. Li Rong, chief of Women Sector to CPPCC held the
discussion; Weng Wenlei and Ge Yingmin, vice
chairpersons of SWF attended the meeting.
Ms. Pan Hong from SWF briefed the
participants at the meeting that SWF was going to hand over 10 proposals to the
coming plenary sessions for the Congress and CPPCC. The proposals were related
with issues on legal right protection for women and children, advancement of
women and livelihood and marriages. The delegates to the gathering appreciated
SWF's openness and commented that 10 proposals focused on what the locals cared
about were important both to the local government and residents as well. It
disclosed that the proposals covered topics of governance of anti-biotics,
allowing the third sectors to run day-care centers, establishing a system of
supervisor for seniors, optimizing community facilities for children as well as
promoting social enterprises etc.
Xu Liping, who served as delegates to the local
Congress for four terms, suggested to improve ways of drafting proposals based
on a pattern of "1 plus X", in another word, balancing a radio for group
proposals and individual proposals.
