The 111th International Women’s Day was celebrated in the DPRK.
Those who visited the plaza of the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun, the supreme temple of Juche, where the great leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il are laid in state, recalled with deep emotion their great love, who had unfolded the politics of attaching importance to and respecting women, regarding it as their motto to believe in the people as in heaven.
People of all walks of life laid floral baskets, bouquets and flowers at the bronze statues and smiling portraits of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il on Mansu Hill and in other places of the country and paid tribute to them.
The open-air-performances were given at different places of the capital city by the Central Art Squad for Increased Production, the Art Squad of the Central Committee of the Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist Youth League, the Art Squad of the Central Committee of the General Federation of Trade Unions of Korea and the Art Squad of the Central Committee of the Union of Agricultural Workers of Korea.
The holiday was conspicuously marked by the colourful performances given at theatres and open-air stages in local areas.
Officials of the provinces, cities, counties, institutions, industrial establishments and co-op farms warmly congratulated the working women.
The restaurants in Pyongyang City and the public service establishments across the country were busy with the holiday service for women.
