The first national meeting of mothers in the DPRK was held on November 16 Juche 50 (1961).

President Kim Il Sung attended the meeting.

He delivered a historic speech, titled, "The Duty of Mothers in the Education of Children."

First, he, on behalf of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea and the Government of the Republic, expressed his gratitude to all mothers who turned out as one in the efforts to build new Korea after the national liberation, those who sent without hesitation their husbands and dear sons and daughters to the sacred war for defending the country with anxiety about the destiny of the country before the happiness of their families during the Fatherland Liberation War, those who turned out in the postwar rehabilitation, tightening their belts even under the difficult situation, those who brought up many orphaned children with parental affection and those who devoted themselves for the education of children and socialist construction.

He went on in the following vein:

A family is a cell of our society in which one’s nearest kith and kin—parents, wife and children, brothers and sisters—live together. What is learned from the mother in childhood is remembered throughout one’s life. The things that remain longest in our memories are our mother’s words and examples. Mothers have to become an excellent educator of their children.

That day, he clarified important tasks of mothers in educating their children one by one.

Listening to his significant speech, all mothers in the country made a resolve to bring up their children to be reliable pillars of the country with a fresh ambition and passion.

The DPRK set November 16, the day when the first national meeting of mothers was held, as Mother’s Day to commemorate it every year.
