Heroines Produced by Pyongyang Textile Mill
Pyongyang, July 30 (KCNA) -- The Pyongyang Textile Mill where women make up the majority of its employees has produced many heroines.

Min Il Hong, manager of the mill, told KCNA on the occasion of the 63rd anniversary of the promulgation of the Law on Sexual Equality (July 30): The mill has produced many heroines including those of the Chollima age.

Ju Pyong Son, Sung Chang Suk, Pak Kum Ok, Ri Hwa Sun and others grew to be heroines in the Chollima age when all people advanced like the wind in the spirit of Chollima.

Four decades have elapsed since then. The weavers are also rendering services to the construction of a great, prosperous and powerful nation, carrying forward the feats of the heroines.

Labor Heroine Jon Ok Hwa has worked as weaver for more than 40 years. She is still working with youthful ardor along with girl-weavers.

Spinner-Labor Heroine Kim Pong Rye remarked: I do want to work more and more to repay the solicitude of the motherland which has put forward as mistresses of the country and factories the women who had been subjected to maltreatment and deprived of the dignity and rights before the liberation.

She is devoting all her wisdom and energy together with young spinners.

Standing in the van of the current great upsurge are workshop head Ri Myong Ok, deputy to the Supreme People's Assembly and Labor Heroine, and Labor Heroine Kim Pok Sil.

The number of innovators who are carrying forward the true life of the heroines produced in the Chollima age is increasing day by day.

The weavers of the mill are registering great successes every day in the current 150-day campaign in the same spirit as was displayed by heroines in the great Chollima upsurge, holding high the torchlight of the new great revolutionary upsurge.
