Toby Tao, the creator of this series of events, commented that the whole concept is about self-love and self-care, as well as supporting other female entrepreneurs (like herself) with the choice of location, catering, and activities.
The focus of the event was on the treatment of women and all attendees enjoyed delicious food, drinks, temporary tattoos, a nail station, and a photo booth. The first ones to arrive were also able to enjoy a taste of the spiritual in the form of tarot readings. Spiritualism is a great example of self-care and with the rise of online tarot readings, this is now an option for women to gain clarity into changes in their personal life as well as any interesting upcoming opportunities. The goal of the Hong Kong Girl’s Power group is to provide a platform through which women can support each other and attend educational seminars and career-planning workshops, as well as meditation and yoga classes. It’s a safe space to get together and check out Hong Kong’s nightlife and networking events.
Secondly, China’s first lady, Professor Peng Liyuan, often speaks about gender issues, promoting awareness and expressing her concerns. This leads to huge media attention, thus playing an important role in the country’s public diplomacy, as well as creating more opportunities for her to advance her policy concerns. Thirdly, China has seen an unprecedented number of female politicians and diplomates over the past decade; a fact that could change the face of its future leaders.
With the number of female students graduating with majors in communications, international relations and other politics-related fields, the number of Chinese female diplomats could rise significantly in the next decades. Moreover, official statistics show that the gap is widening as there are more female students in Chinese universities than male students. This news means that over time, more women will hold senior positions within the government and find more opportunities in STEM fields.
Gender equality is one of the top priorities on this year’s global agenda and China will undoubtedly be a leader in raising awareness of it and holding a series of diplomatic events. By playing such an important part in this current issue, China is helping shape future views on women in prominent political and business roles.
