Foreign Correspondents Ep.76 - South Korea's #MeToo Movement
The #MeToo Movement Lands in South Korea
The #MeToo Movement has recently garnered significant attention from the South Korean media. The campaign, where victims speak out about their past experiences of sexual harassment on social media, has lit up South Korean society. The movement in this country began in late-January, after a female prosecutor appeared on television and claimed that she had been sexually abused by her superiors in the office. The #MeToo Movement has rapidly gained a foothold, especially in the arts and entertainment industries. The country was thrown into a state of shock after a renowned poet, a stage director and various actors were accused of sexual harassment in rapid succession. Following a number of confessions and accusations of women who have come forward through the #MeToo Movement, the South Korean police began conducting a serious investigation of the accused, based on the victims' testimonies as well as media reports.
The #MeToo Movement Across the World
The #MeToo Movement first began in Hollywood last October, after actress Alyssa Milano used the hastag phrase #MeToo on social media following her confession of being a victim of sexual harassment. According to a recent survey of 800 entertainment workers in Hollywood, nine out of ten respondents said they had been victims of sexual harrassment in one form of another. Many Hollywood celebrities have shown solidarity with the #MeToo Movement to uproot these dark practices that have taken hold of the industry. During the Golden Globe Awards in January, many actors, actresses, writers, directors and other industry officials wore black clothing to show their support for the campaign. Even in China, where social media is strictly monitored and controlled by the central government, the #MeToo Movement has also gotten underway. Chinese activists have either used the hashtag #metooinchina or #woyeshi, a Chinese translation of the English phrase "me too", to protest the widespread issue of sexual harrassment in China. This week, we discuss the latest on the #MeToo Movement here in South Korea as well as the rest of the world with our panel of foreign journalists.
