With the theme "Through women's eyes-reading between the lines", the 6th EU-China International Literary Festival was launched on Saturday.

"We dedicate this year's literary festival to the diversity and creativity of women writers across the EU and China", Nicolas Chapuis, EU ambassador to China, said at the festival's online opening ceremony.

During the three-week online literary festival, which runs through Dec 19,50 novelists, writers and poets from China and European Union will discuss their works, creative ideas and the world that inspires them in lectures, dialogue or readings that audiences can access through articles, videos and podcasts.

"The true value of women's writing was long ignored, but has gradually gained recognition over the last century," Chapuis said.

After almost two years, the world is still fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic.

"At this moment of societal change, women's engagement in economic and social recovery of today's world is essential," he said.
