SHARE On International Women’s Day, Kim Jong Un honors women by giving them makeup

How does a dictator whose country doesn’t offer sex education to women and subjects women to forced abortions celebrate International Women’s Day?

If you’re North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, you give makeup to women.

That’s probably not the best way to send a message showing you support women’s equality, but after all, this is North Korea we’re talking about.

And because Jong Un has never been one to miss a photo op, on Sunday he gave a series of speeches while instructing his commanding officers to pass out the makeup he brought as gifts.

Side note: The dictator didn’t actually meet with any any women at his public events.

According to KCNA, the official state-run news agency, Jong Un also held a meeting to mark the 20th anniversary of Kim Jong Il’s “scientific theory” of the role of women in “pushing ahead with the revolution and construction.”

A release from KCNA also touted that “the Korean women’s movement greets the heyday of its development as it is led by Marshal Kim Jong Un.”
