The local government of southeast China's Jiangxi Province is going to carry out a one-month-long women's reading activity titled 'Intelligent Women and Happy Families', starting from April 8.
Through a series of 'scholarly family' selections, book recommendations and essay competitions, the event aims to improve women's literary quality and self-cultivation, with a view to encouraging more women to contribute their wisdom and strength to the construction of the beautiful Jiangxi Province.
