Nigerian Organization Introduces Women's Pride in DPRK
Pyongyang, March 12 (KCNA) -- The Nigerian National Committee for the Study of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism posted an article titled "Pride of Korean women" on its website on March 2.

The article said:

On the occasion of the March 8 International Women's Day, the world pays attention to the reality of the DPRK where the dignity and pride of the women reached the highest.

Korea's liberation marked a historical turning point in the position of the Korean women.

The promulgation of the Law on Sex Equality in July, 1946, a year after the country's liberation, put an end to the centuries-long miserable destiny of the Korean women.

Many women were elected deputies to the Supreme People's Assembly and power organs at all levels and could exercise their right to speak at the meetings discussing state affairs.

In the DPRK the position, role and rights of women are legally guaranteed.

Noting that the Korean women are enjoying worthwhile life under the care of the state and society, the article cited the Pyongyang Maternity Hospital as its example.

The article introduced in detail that the Korean women are being respected as patriots, heroes and forerunners of the era in all fields of society.
