She has been known for her tremendous efforts in the field of Community Development particularly in safeguarding the rights of women and giving them a status in society which women truly deserve. Education and gender awareness among rural women are her primary aims.She describes her mother's funeral in a very sad way saying "My young nephews were all in front of me. As a daughter, I was put back with the younger generation in the funeral procession. It was all men at the front, and according to custom they had to say a lot. The women were only allowed to cry, not to speak". At that point in time she decided that she had to do something for the welfare of women.She saw that women living in rural areas in China or the ones who have migrated from a village to another were faced with tough circumstances. In rural areas, despite laws guaranteeing women's equality, traditional practices and values still dominated. She saw that many of the poor families were reluctant to spend money on their children's particularly daughter's education. So she decided to help the rural women and ensure their survival and development.Xie Lihua was born in 1951 in Chanyi County, Shandong Province.
