Choe Hwi delivered the report.  He stressed that “the women’s movement of Korea is the Chuch’e-oriented women’s movement that pioneers by President Kim Il Sung [Kim Il-so’ng] and has covered the proud course of development under the wise guidance of the President and leader Kim Jong Il [Kim Cho’ng-il].  The history of the Korean women’s movement is closely associated with the exploits of Kang Pan Sok  [Kang Pan-sok; mother of Kim Il Sung], an outstanding leader of the Korean’s women’s movement, and anti-Japanese war heroine Kim Jong Suk [Kim Cho’ng-suk], who dedicated themselves to resolving women’s problems.”

Choe also said that “today the Korean women’s movement of Chuch’e is ushering in the greatest heyday of its development as it holds respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un [Kim Cho’ng-u’n] in high esteem.  The Korean women’s movement has taken only the road of victory as a revolutionary and militant movement generation after generation and prided itself on being an example of the movement of the world’s progressive women.”  Choe called “upon all women to make a positive contribution to glorifying the glorious history and tradition of the Korean women’s movement of Chuch’e and achieving a fresh victory on all fronts of building a powerful socialist country.”
