Just before the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the National Human Rights Commission of Korea!
President Moon Jae-in met the father of the late Air Force Sergeant Lee Ye-ram, who died while complaining about secondary sexual harassment.
Sergeant Lee’s father requested a special prosecutor’s office saying that all those in charge had been released due to the Ministry of National Defense’s negligent investigation, and President Moon replied that he would take a good look.

In an article posted on social media to commemorate Violence Against Women’s Expulsion Week, President Moon also said that it is heartbreaking that there are still women who are victims of violence, and that whenever an incident occurs, he will reflect on it and use it as a mirror to improve the system.
In his speech to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Human Rights Commission, he emphasized the need for a new human rights norm, saying that there was a limitation in not enacting the Basic Law on Human Rights and Non-Discrimination 20 years ago.

Politicians have also made promises about women’s human rights and safety.

Regarding the discussion of the anti-discrimination law, the Democratic Party of Korea held a debate hosted by the Policy Committee, and the Justice Party entered a ‘final demonstration’ urging the enactment within this year.
While dating violence such as ‘stalking murder’ continues, feminist issues are prominent in politics ahead of the presidential election.
Furthermore, attention is being paid to whether a bill that prohibits discrimination, hate, and exclusion toward all minorities and the weak in our society will rise sharply in the last regular session of the Moon Jae-in administration.
