People in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea send warm congratulations to the women.
Happy March 8, the International Women’s Day!
Along with the affectionate greetings, women are presented with fragrant bouquets and songs of women are sung with pride.
In retrospect, the happy life of the Korean women began after the great leader Kim Il Sung liberated the country from the Japanese imperialists.
On March 8, Juche 35 (1946), the March 8 International Women’s Day celebrated for the first time in the liberated country, the organ of the Workers’ Party of Korea carried an article under the title “To the Korean Women in Commemoration of March 8”.
“The liberation of the Korean nation on August 15 brought about the emancipation of the Korean women. It’s for the first time that the liberated Korean women commemorate March 8, the International Women’s Day. …March 8 is the day of struggle of women of the whole world for the social liberation of women and their equal freedom of human rights; it is the day when the women pledge to take part in building a social state in firm unity and put it into practice.”
A number of articles carried in publications on the occasion of March 8 were an eruption of the infinite thanks for Kim Il Sung who made the women full-fledged masters of new Korea.
Afterwards, Kim Il Sung proclaimed the Law on Sex Equality to realize century-old desire of the Korean women to live a life worthy of a human being, freed from humiliation, contempt and restraint.
The Korean women had the greatest fortune of having enjoyed a proud life amid the blessing of the great leader Kim Jong Il.
Kim Jong Il regarded the women as a powerful force pushing forward the revolution and construction. He made public famous works to illuminate the road for the Korean women’s movement and saw to it that the whole country is filled with the social atmosphere of attaching importance to and respecting the women.
A grand concert was given in the capital city Pyongyang on March 8, Juche 101 (2012), the 102nd March 8 International Women’s Day.
That day, looking up to the respected Kim Jong Un who had the concert given, the Korean women more deeply felt his noble intention to glorify the idea of the great leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il on the women’s movement and their exploits.
Kim Tong Sun, Department Director of the Central Committee of the Socialist Women’s Union of Korea, says:
“The love and trust of the respected Kim Jong Un are the motive force enabling our women to perform miracles and feats at the site of building a powerful socialist country as the powerful force turning one of the wheels of revolution.
Now our women are supporting his idea and leadership with pure conscience and obligation.
The creations of eternal value built on this land and the remarkable successes which made a new breakthrough in the economic development of the country are associated with the pure conscience, valuable sweat and patriotism of our women.”
75 years has passed since the March 8 International Women’s Day was celebrated in new Korea for the first time.
Since then the Korean women have enjoyed a beautiful life, enjoying love and respect of all people under the care of the peerlessly great men.
Ri Yong Hui, Workshop Head of the Pyongyang Children’s Foodstuff Factory, says:
“Really great are the honour and pride of the Korean women devoting all their wisdom and enthusiasm to the country, people and posterity.
Born into an ordinary office worker’s family in the northern part Hoeryong, I graduated from Kim Il Sung University and have become a deputy to the Supreme People’s Assembly.
Only warm spring days are in store for our women who are leading a happy life amid the blessing of the peerlessly great men generation after generation.”
The Korean women will become more beautiful as flowers of the era under the loving care of Kim Jong Un.
