Baroness Perry our guest speaker will give talk on “A comparison of women’s education in Britain & Korea.” This will be followed by a question & answer session.

Sitting in the House of Lords, she is a member of the All-Party Britain-Republic of Korea Parliamentary Group. An educationalist, she was the Chief Inspector of Schools in England. Instrumental in founding the English Speaking Union in Korea. Baroness Perry accompanied Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh on their visit to Korea in 1997.

The British Korean Women’s Society is a recently formed organisation. It grew out of a series of requests for help and advice from Korean women in the UK, which were originally received by the ROK Embassy and forwarded on to people who the Embassy thought might be able to help.

The BKWS aims & objectives are:

  • To share the British experience and knowledge with new members who have recently arrived in the UK.
  • To address the issues concerning Korean women and their families in the UK.
  • To promote communication and mutual understanding among Korean and British communities and to advance the cultural, economic and educational development of its members.
  • To promote, preserve and contribute to Korean culture in Great Britain.
  • To promote charitable work in order to give aid to Korean women and children

All women who support our objectives are welcomed to attend.
