Speaker Emerita Pelosi:
As founder of Women’s Rights in China, I am very proud to extend to you my deep and sincere appreciation for your steadfast leadership on matters that concern tens of millions of women and children in China, Tibet, Xinjiang, and Hong Kong.
Through the years, WRIC has known that because of your presence, Members of the United States Congress would not ignore the outcry for help from women in China who were being abused, imprisoned, kidnapped, forcibly aborted, and having their children taken from them.
Your trip to Taiwan was a great act of courage and support for democracy, but it was no surprise to us because we all know you are not intimidated by threats about where you should or should not be. We will never forget the scene when you and your two colleagues bravely raised a banner in Tiananmen square to protest the massacre of people by the Beijing regime. You were deported by the CCP authorities, but it made the international community pay more attention to the gunshots in Beijing. Your visit to Kiev to meet with Zelensky makes us even more proud. The courage and wisdom of the female speaker of the United States are obvious to all the world.
You have paid attention to the freedom, democracy and human rights of the Chinese people for decades, leaving a glorious page in your life.
Thanks to your grace, you and the Congress that you lead have led America over obstacles, and our country has not lost its way, and has sailed through the storms.
Madame Speaker, you have inspired many women and our daughters to get involved, to succeed in the local and national government. You have welcomed and encouraged women to have our rightful place at the table, and we are so grateful.
We love you.
