On September 11, SWF hosted a meeting at Jing-guo-yuan to give an impetus to Grass-roots Women Council and their projects. Sun Mei'e, vice chairperson of SWF attended the meeting and made a speech to participants close to 60, who were either in charge of SWF local chapters or first-classed women homes.
Sun spoke at the meeting by recalling a history of Women Council since it was set up and she recognized its performance and pointed out its shortcomings as well as coverage limitation, lack of clear objective and etc. Sun indicated in particular that Women Council was one of its defects discovered from SWF project to assess woman homes. To enhance Woman Council, Sun offered three suggestions as follows: firstly, taking opportunity of rating woman homes to improve a decision-making mechanism for the Council, secondly, encouraging executives to play an effective role in women affairs, so as to back up council's function, and thirdly, regulating rules for all institutions concerned to ensure the Council efficient in its routine work.
At the meeting, SWF awarded 19 first-classed women homes for their excellent performance with an award plaque and a list of supply promised each. At the same time, SWF declared open a platform associated with Woman-home Alliance for resource supply.
