5 stresses, 4 beauties, 3 loves (simplified Chinese: 五讲四美三热爱; traditional Chinese: 五講四美三熱愛; pinyin: wǔ jiǎng sì měi sān rè ài) is a numbered policy in the People's Republic of China. On February 25, 1981, the All-China Federation of Trade Unions, the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Youth League, the All-China Women's Federation, and nine other organizations issued a joint statement establishing this policy. Scholar Sheela Murthy has written that the policy was part of China's "civilization" (wenming) movement, an attempt to move away from the chaos of the Cultural Revolution era and maintain the legitimacy of the Communist Party of China. Chinese Vice-Premier Wan Li served as the chair of the 5 Stresses, 4 Beauties, 3 Loves Activity Committee.
