She was indeed the great paragon of women revolutionaries. A model Juche type communist revolutionary... We believe that comrade Kim Jong Suk serves as a role model for anti-imperialist women revolutionaries throughout the world, her teachings show the correct way forward for the women's movement even in the imperialist countries. Today in the DPRK women are playing an increasing role in society thanks to the leadership of the dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un who is carrying forward to make sure that the ideas of Madame Kim Jong Suk on women's emancipation. In the DPRK women were legally given equality with men in July 1946 . This is practically guaranteed by nurseries and kindergartens and many other measures .

In the DPRK, there are Kindergartens and nurseries in every town, village and enterprise. Working women are provided by the state with paid maternity leave and indeed even ensures them time to feed their babies. One important fact, is that there is full equality in terms of pay and conditions for women with men in the DPRK. There is a proactive policy by the WPK of increasing the proportion of women cadres and improving the qualifications of female functionaries in their roles. We witnessed a recent example of the evaluation of female cadres within the leadership of the Party and State, with the election of Kim Yo Jong to the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea in October 2017. Women in the DPRK have gained some prominent positions, such as the Korean Television Newsreader Ri Chun Hee, the Scientist Paek Sol Hui, the Labour Heroine Jong Chui Sil and the Marathon Runner Jong Song Ok. When I attended a social sciences' course in Pyongyang some years ago, the main lecturer was a women named Mun Jong Suk. "
