From 6 to 10 May 2019, a delegation of the Vietnam Women's Union (VWU) led by Ms. Nguyen Thi Thu Ha - Party Central Committee member, VWU President - paid a working visit to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) at the invitation of the Socialist Women’s Union of Korea (SWUK).

While in DPRK, the delegation visited facilities for women and children including an obstetric and gynecological hospital, a pediatric hospital, a children's cultural house, kindergartens and an agricultural cooperative to learn about the DPRK policies for women and children as well as the SWUK activities which help promote women’s roles in the socio-economic development of the country.

At the meeting with the SWUK, the VWU shared its experience in supporting women in economic development, in monitoring and providing feedback to policies and legal documents related to women issues, and in expanding external cooperation. Through visits and discussion, Ms. Nguyen Thi Thu Ha said, the delegation could also learn from SWUK’s experience in organizing political and ideological education activities for women.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."
