After the formation of the Association, Kim Il Sung had wisely led the work for expanding and strengthening it, the reporter noted, adding:
The President founded the Democratic Women’s Union of North Korea, which inherited the tradition of the Association, after the liberation of the country and guided the Korean women to powerfully push one of the two wheels of the revolutionary chariot with their united efforts.
The glorious history of the Juche-oriented Korean women’s movement is associated with the noble devotion of Kang Pan Sok, the outstanding leader of the Korean women’s movement, and Kim Jong Suk, the anti-Japanese war heroine.
Leader Kim Jong Il developed the Korean women’s movement into higher level, firmly preserving and glorifying the President’s idea on the women’s movement and his leadership exploits.

The reporter stressed the need for all the Korean women and members of the women’s union to add brilliance to the tradition and history of the Juche-based Korean women’s movement under the banner of modeling the whole society on Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism and fully discharge their responsibility and duty in the struggle to accomplish the revolutionary cause of Juche, true to the wise leadership of Kim Jong Un.
