The Women's Federation for Peace in Asia
The inaugural assembly of the Women's Federation for Peace in Asia was held on September 17, 1991, at the NK Hall of the Tokyo Bay Hotel, with 7,000 Japanese women in attendance. At that event True Mother gave her first public speech; its title was "The True Love Movement Bringing Salvation to Asia and the World."
Subsequently, the inaugural assembly of the Korean chapter of the Women's Federation for Peace in Asia was held on October 31, 1991, at the Little Angels Performing Arts Center in Seoul, with 2,000 woman leaders in attendance. At that gathering, Korean and Japanese woman leaders were united in expressing their determination to work together to spearhead joint efforts to create world peace in Asia and throughout the world. True Father told the attendees that the women of Korea represent Adam and the women of Japan represent Eve. He called on them to invest their hearts and souls into restoring the world, centering on True Mother.
1 We held the inaugural assembly of the Women's Federation for Peace in Asia in Japan on September 17, 1991, and the inaugural assembly of the Korean chapter of the Women's Federation for Peace in Asia on October 31 of the same year. Within seven months, we held the inaugural assembly for the Women's Federation for World Peace, and over the next seven months we will set up chapters throughout the world.
On November 20, 1991, we held a national-level assembly. No one, including the members in Japan, believed it was possible to hold that assembly so soon after inaugurating the Korean chapter. It had taken Japan five years to prepare for their first event. They asked how it could be possible to gather 10,000 people for a national assembly in just 20 days. But we did it, gathering 15,000 people for the nationwide rally of the Women's Federation for Peace in Asia at the Seoul Olympic Fencing Arena. Four months later, about 160,000 people attended the inaugural assembly of the Women's Federation for World Peace.
By Mother taking leadership in this way, she came to stand right by my side. To go to the heavenly kingdom, both of us have to go together, and the children will have to follow after us. We have to teach them about this. To accomplish this, we must liberate women. Historically, during the course of restoration through indemnity, women have harbored a great deal of deep sorrow in their hearts.
2 The time has come for Korean and Japanese women to join together and return to their original position. This was done through the Women's Federation for Peace in Asia, when Japanese women and Korean women united. By successfully completing her three speeches before the public, True Mother established the condition of Cain-Abel unity on the national level.
On April 10, 1992, in Seoul, more than 5,000 women came from Japan and joined the women of Korea for the first assembly of the Women's Federation for World Peace. That is how Korea became the elder Eve. By uniting, centered on the restored elder Eve, and with Japan in the position of Cain, Cain and Abel became one on the national level. Because the women of those two countries united with True Mother, who has the authority to unite all women, they could stand in the position to represent her. Thus, the Women's Federation for Peace in Asia laid the foundation for the establishment of the Women's Federation for World Peace. Until now, Eve has been following me, but with the declarations at these assemblies, Mother now stands at my side. In that way, we have established the authority of the Parents.
3 In September 1991, we were in Alaska. We needed to prepare to unite the women of Japan and| Korea, because Japan is in the position of the Eve nation. But at the time I could not see a way forward. Still, there was no one but I who could make it happen.
I needed Mother to go to Japan and hold an assembly of 7,000 people. When I first asked her to do this, she probably felt as if lightning had struck her. It is not easy to address an assembly of that size, especially in the presence of the prime minister's wife. But she accepted and carried out her task decisively. Returning to Korea, we connected this first assembly in Japan to the Korean launch of the Women's Federation for Peace in Asia.
After doing this, we established the Women's Federation for World Peace. Although Korea was the nation that took the lead in founding this organization, it could not be limited to Korea or even to Asia. Through the Women's Federation for World Peace we are aiming to bring peace throughout the world.
4 I told Mother that she needed to study Japanese, because she would have to make speeches in Japanese, representing me, once we reached the world level. In Japan, if you want to move and melt hearts, you cannot do it by speaking only Korean. I knew that Mother was neither born in Japan nor had studied Japanese for more than a short time. Nevertheless, I told her that if she could speak in fluent Japanese, the Japanese people would be bowled over. That was why I told her to study Japanese. Mother accepted unconditionally. She just said yes, without complaining, and followed me completely. In this respect Mother is truly remarkable.
5 The first time Mother stood before the public was at the assembly of the Women's Federation for Peace in Asia, at the NK Hall of the Tokyo Bay Hotel in front of an audience of 7,000. It was her first time speaking in public, but she carried herself with such dignity. How could she do that? Mother had attended many international assemblies with me, so she had already experienced being the center of attention among prominent guests. Also, when I gave speeches she listened and analyzed them. She learned that people are more attentive to your speeches if you vary the tone of your voice, going up and down. She saw that a smooth and sincere delivery would impress and move an audience.
6 The first time True Mother spoke from the stage was at the inaugural assembly of the Women's Federation for Peace in Asia. An audience of 7,000 had been gathered, including many famous and eminent Japanese women. When Mother first stood on the stage, she looked around to gain an understanding of the audience before her. Then, through her speech, she moved everyone's heart. The next time Mother spoke publicly in Japan, it was in front of an audience of 50,000 at the Tokyo Dome. Although she does not speak Japanese well, she was determined to deliver her speech in Japanese. With only 15 days to prepare for the speech she barely slept, because she was so determined to establish herself as True Mother in front of that Japanese audience. To give a speech in front of 50,000 people would make even a man's legs shake, so for a woman to speak in front of such a large audience was not easy at all. Mother approached it with great seriousness, and she made the Tokyo Dome event a great success.
7 After Mother's successful events in Japan, she went on to tour 40 countries. On that tour, Mother wanted to achieve a victory in the United States, the elder son nation, while speaking in English. Now she tries to speak in every nation's language. If she has to speak in Spanish, or in any other language that she does not know, she will manage to do so. As long as she has 40 days to prepare, she can deliver the entire speech in that language. She has that confidence, and she is willing to put in the effort. This is how she is, no matter what the objective; therefore, no one can equal her.
8 Japanese women and Korean women must join together and unite with True Mother. That is restoration. As a man, I restored the first and second sons. However, it is for Mother to restore the first and second daughters, centering on women. I carried out the historical battle to have Abel restore the realm of the elder son. I restored the positions of the sons and returned them to God. I finished my part of the work. Centering on the United States and the Soviet Union, the authority of the elder son has been restored. The time has come, therefore, for Mother to do her part in restoration. Thus, I am having Mother connect women from two providential nations, Korea and Japan. For this, I am bequeathing my victorious foundation to her in my mission as the Messiah so that she can create her own foundation of victory as Eve.
9 The age of women is coming. So, I gave the direction to activate the women in the church. Japan was chosen as the Eve nation in relation to Korea, the Adam nation, so we had to begin in Japan. Mother has to bind together all of the women of Japan, both in the internal realm of the church and in the external realm of society. Therefore, I called Japanese women to the training center on Jeju Island and instructed them on matters that had remained unclear. I then assigned 100 women to each prefecture in Japan. Japan is an island nation, so in order to bring the Japanese to Korea I had to begin the work on a Korean island before bringing them to the mainland. I chose Jeju Island. Mother had to function as a bridge between the Japanese women and the Korean women of the Unification Church, so that the Korean women would accept the Japanese women. If they had not, it would have been a big problem. The Korean women had to prepare themselves to accept the Japanese women. The sooner they were prepared to accept them, the quicker the Japanese and Korean women would unite.
