Pyongyang, July 30 (KCNA) — Papers Saturday editorially observe the 59th anniversary of the promulgation of the Law on Sex Equality.
An editorial of Rodong Sinmun says that President Kim Il Sung promulgated the historic law on July 30, Juche 35 (1946), thus bringing about a fundamental turn in improving the social status of the Korean women and carving out their destiny.
The promulgation of the law completely freed them from century-old feudal oppression and humiliation and enabled them to freely participate in activities in all fields including politics, economy and culture with equal right with men. It was since the promulgation of the law that the Korean women, once marginalized in the society after being humiliated and disregarded, came to lead such a worthwhile life as devoting their inexhaustible strength, wisdom and enthusiasm to the sacred struggle for the prosperity of the country as full-fledged builders of a new society.
The Songun era led by Kim Jong Il has put the social dignity and personality of the women on the highest level.
Korean women continue registering signal achievements at every unit and in each work place to build a great prosperous powerful nation.
It is thanks to a large contingent of woman revolutionaries devoting all their wisdom and enthusiasm to the party, the revolution and the country and people that the Songun era has been further glorified.
It is the true way for them to exalt their dignity to fully discharge their duty and role in the general march for Songun revolution.
Minju Joson editorial calls on the women to perform heroic feats in the worthwhile struggle to greet the 60th anniversaries of the Workers’ Party of Korea and Korea’s liberation with proud successes in the general march for Songun revolution and thus strikingly demonstrate the revolutionary stamina of the Korean women.
