I Was Wrong About Korea
When I heard about this in other countries, I thought this could never happen here — 'Slut Walk' protest held in Seoul. That said, the protests, while misguided, are not without reason:
- The protests began after Michael Sanguinetti, a Toronto police officer, said, “Women should avoid dressing like sluts” to remain safe.
The Korean version of the Slut Walk protest was initiated by a woman who suggested the rally on her Twitter account after the alleged sexual assault by three male medical school students at Korea University on a female colleague during a school trip in May.
