Approximately 50 members from the Dalian Women’s Federation visited the Kitakyushu Municipal Gender Equality Center Move last September to promote exchanges. The Federation’s visit was to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the establishment of a sister city relationship between Kitakyushu City and Dalian City.

 Established in 1946, the Dalian Women’s Federation strives to ensure that women’s rights are protected and that gender equality is promoted. The Federation is involved in a wide range of initiatives, such as presenting opinions on women’s education; encouraging women’s participation in national politics and policies for women and children; implementing projects for women and children and promoting interaction with overseas women and overseas organizations engaged in women’s issues.

 KFAW visited the Federation’s Service Center for Women, which offers housekeeper training and provides temporary housekeeper staffing services. Following the visit, KFAW requested the Federation to share information through the mutual exchange of each other’s publications and through written contributions. In response to these requests, Chair person Wang Ling Jie said that the Federation would like to promote interaction on issues regarding the entire Asia region through information exchange.
