Campaign empowers poor, rural women

By LI LEI | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2020-09-16 00:00

China's antipoverty drive has made headway in empowering poor, rural women with assistance ranging from easy loans to health checks, said an official with the All-China Women's Federation, as official figures have spotlighted female susceptibility to extreme poverty.

Zhang Dongmei, a member of the federation's secretariat, said of the 93 million Chinese who have escaped absolute poverty since late 2012, about half are women.

Female poverty is a major target of the nationwide poverty reduction efforts, and women are a major force in taming rural impoverishment, she said.
