DPRK Women Enjoy Worthwhile Life
Pyongyang, July 30 (KCNA) -- Today marks the 70th anniversary of the promulgation of the Law on Sex Equality in the DPRK. President Kim Il Sung promulgated the "Law on Sex Equality in North Korea" on July 30, Juche 35 (1946).

On the anniversary, all the women of the country pay their deep respects to President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il who provided them with all rights and high dignity and heartfelt thanks to supreme leader Kim Jong Un who is cultivating the flower garden of respect for the women with his loving care.

Over the past 70 years after the birth of the law, they have led a worthwhile life under the care of the peerlessly great persons, exercising their rights as masters of the country to the full.

Ordinary women were elected deputies to the state power organs at all levels and many women became competent government officials, heroes, professors and people's actresses, artists and sportspersons, pushing one of the two wheels of the revolutionary chariot.

Their social position and role were enhanced in the Songun (military-first) era.

Today the women in the DPRK are playing an important role in military, political, economic, cultural, scientific and other spheres of society.

Many of them have become models of the times to be loved by all the people. Among them are a peasant Pak Ok Hui, a weaver Mun Kang Sun, world marathon queen Jong Song Ok and world women's judo star Kye Sun Hui.
