PARIS -- Peng Liyuan, wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping, on Tuesday attended a special session on girls' and women's education here at the headquarters of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

At the session, some laureates of the UNESCO Prize for Girls' and Women's Education gave brief remarks on their understanding and promotion of the undertaking.

Peng, a UNESCO special envoy for the advancement of girls' and women's education, appreciated the efforts made by UNESCO and the prize winners, and shared China's successful practices in this regard.

In a review of her work in this field for the past five years, Peng especially referred to the Spring Bud Project, a program launched by China Children and Teenagers' Fund to help dropout girls return to school and to improve teaching conditions in impoverished areas.

She stressed that promoting the education of girls and women is a lofty cause that deserves attention, support and devotion from more people.

Knowledge and skills are two great forces that can change the lives of women, and with equal and quality education, they all have the opportunity to be outstanding, added Peng.
