“To have love is to have everything.” These are the words of China’s most beloved literary figure of modern times, Bin Xin. Some of you may think these words are idealistic, maybe even romantically unrealistic. But, using these words as her guiding principle, Wu Qing, the daughter of Bin Xin, has become one of China’s most beloved politicians and is recognized internationally as a champion of women’s rights. She is a woman of extraordinary background who uses her education, her wit, and her energy to help those who would otherwise have no connections to her.
