    Pyongyang, March 8 (KCNA) -- A national meeting took place at the People's Palace of Culture Monday to mark the tenth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's famous work "The Women Are a Powerful Force Pushing Forward the Revolution and Construction". The work, published on March 8, Juche 84 (1995), made a scientific and theoretical formulation of the position and role of the women in the revolution and construction, gave a comprehensive analysis of the glorious tradition and proud history of the Korean women's movement and underscored the need to establish an atmosphere of respecting the women in the whole society.
    The tradition of the Korean women's movement is a tradition established in the period of the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle under the leadership of President Kim Il Sung and the history of the women's movement represents a brilliant history of the struggle to achieve the socio-political emancipation and independence of the women, the work noted.
    It highly praised the women heroes and patriots who have devoted their all to the struggle for the Party and the revolution, the country and the people since the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle.
    Pak Sun Hui, chairperson of the Central Committee of the Korean Democratic Women's Union, in her report said that the work serves as an immortal great programme as it clearly indicated the road of the Korean women's movement in the new era of the Juche revolution, the Songun era, and a banner encouraging the women to fulfill their mission and tasks as the mistresses of the revolution and construction.
    Calling upon the women to become ardent patriots who make their life rewarding on the road of the Songun revolution, the reporter stressed that all the women should greet with loyalty the grand festivals marking the 60th anniversaries of the Workers' Party of Korea and the liberation of the country with shining labor achievements which they can boast before the times and history.
    Present at the meeting were Kim Jung Rin, secretary of the WPK Central Committee, and officials concerned.
