I’m Gen.E reading a book!



Seoul YWCA happily introduces you the ‘Open Salon Gen.E’ (Gen.E means Gender Equality) ‘Open Salon Gen.E’ has two types of sessions as below.
1) The book lecture ‘I’m Gen.E reading a book’
2) The Movie screening ‘I’m Gen.E watching a movie’



Having those sessions, Seoul YWCA tries to step forward to the society based on gender equality. We had Seo Hwa Kim who is the writer on 20th, July. She is a feminist mom who has a son an elementary school student. She has published her book recently ‘Sexual conversation between elementary school student son and the feminist mom’

Most people put a question, “Isn’t it too early to teach him about the sex education?” It is pretty interesting that parents avoid or ignore this matter while they are trying too hard to teach other education their children at the very young age.

“Young children like 7 or 8 years old can access sex video easily these days, and you know if children watch this at their young age, they will have distorted gender sensibility. Please do not ignore sex education. The attitude is important to have a conversation with your children.”

She also emphasizes the gender issue of child-rearing.
“Our society always blames ‘Mom’ if there is any problem. It is obvious and acceptable that Dads cannot care for babies, but Mom has to be an expert. Do you think we live with equality?”

Sex is the part of life, not related to violation or sex. She kept pointing out ‘Early Sex education’ is important for our children. We all should make an effort to have a life based on gender equality.

Women had endured for a long time before MeToo movement came out, and this is a new wave that they are no longer hiding their experience related with sexual violence.

Because of this distorted media report, it causes secondary victimization of sexual violence victims.
