Digital Sexual Violence in South Korea

Spy cams in hotel rooms and public toilets, revenge porn, date rape videos, K-pop stars sharing secretly filmed sexual acts in chat rooms – South Korea has a major problem with digital sexual violence. What fuels it? How can it be combatted? How can society protect the privacy and safety of its predominant victims – women?

Youngcho Lee is a Cambridge PHD student and studied Gender, Policies, Inequalities at LSE. She recently organised and moderated the amazing event for our society in March, with founder of the South Korean MeToo movement, Prosecutor Seo Ji Hyun. We are delighted to welcome her back for our final event of the academic year, to speak on this crucial topic.
