Violence Against Women in Korea
« on: June 27, 2016, 02:37:01 AM »
The topic of violence against women in Korea has been in the media a lot of late due unfortunately to a spate of such crimes. It is of course a topic that relates directly to the JMS cult. With Jeong's release from jail expected next year, the extra attention given to the issue comes at an interesting time. It's quite inconceivable then that the release from jail of an unrepentant serial rapist will go unnoticed and unreported on in the media. Given the cult's penchant for secrecy and staying under the radar, I have a feeling the release from jail of their God may not be the party they're hoping it will be.

Like this thread here which contains a collection of articles that explore the issue of how Korean sex offenders are monitored after release from jail, I would like to offer a similar collections of articles and opinion pieces. I have been saving links for the past couple of months, and I also have a small collection of links to older related articles. And in the process of posting these, I've come across more than a few more.

July 6: Violence Against Women (Jason Lim for The Korea Times)
There are several messages that this judgment sends to victims of domestic violence, all of them devastating: One, domestic violence is a shameful topic that should be kept in the home; two, even if you are beaten, shut up and suffer in silence; three, it's not dignified to reveal that you are a victim of domestic violence; four, you are partly to blame in any case.

April 23: Raped & Alone In A Foreign Land (The Korea Herald)
In 2011, 22,034 rapes were reported, according to the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office. Of those, 18,591 cases resulted in arrests with a total of 18,880 offenders being convicted. However, only 12 percent of those found guilty, or 2,289, were sentenced to jail time.

It is impossible to know the true number of victims in Korea, let alone the number of foreign victims, as many who are attacked ― Korean or foreign ― do not report the crime. Based on a 2010 survey by the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family, it is believed that the sexual crime reporting rate in Korea is about 10 percent.

Nearly every one of the female students in their twenties and thirties that I’ve met in the classroom, no matter their frame, has experienced violence at some point for being a woman. It ranges from abusive behavior on buses and subways to attempted rapes in alleyways, from drunken fisticuffs to vengeance from spurned boyfriends. If they survived the day unscathed, it was simply because luck was on their side.

It’s possible that each of these South Korean women has regularly suffered pressure, intimidation, humiliation or physical assault on the job or in power relationships at home. The murder may have been a trigger, just as a fatal police shooting of a young black man in St. Louis triggered a resistance campaign against racism. If I were a man, I think I would be a little shocked to hear what women are saying. Of course, I probably wouldn’t be shocked if I were an intelligent man.

The third installment, titled “Can I go on?” focuses on the issue of male professors sexually harassing female students. In it, a professor tells his student, “You‘re new here. I suppose there are a lot of things you don’t know. I can teach you a thing or two. If you weren‘t my student, I might try something. . . .”
In real life, the professor it was based on also asked the student if she wanted to “go to a motel for some instruction.”
“A lot of the wording for the sexual harassing remarks by professors is exactly as it happened. We heard the stories from students and said to each other, ’They really do hear this kind of stuff every day,‘” Yeom recalled.

You're welcome. I just added a link to an NPR piece that is worth listening to. It's strange, I've seen these headlines over the months, but the process of gathering them together and seeing all the June articles listed (and I'm sure there are more - plus they are only English articles) really brought home the size and scope of the issue. Korea isn't unique though, perhaps equally long lists could be made from articles from other countries, but regardless of the numbers and comparisons, it is certainly an issue that is getting more coverage, and that can only be a good thing. But yeah, I can't say I wasn't shocked when I stepped back and scrolled through all the above articles after posting them.

Yeah, you're right. Did you hear about how the Brock Turner case turned out last month? It's so infuriating how lightly people take rape. I'm glad you are trying to spread the awareness.
