Freedom to Be Natural
“What happened to your hair? Are you sick? Did you split with your boyfriend?” These are very common questions others ask whenever one cuts their hair or does not wear makeup. The person likely cut it because they did not like long hair any longer or felt burdened to put on makeup one day. The questions about ‘why’ are likely annoying and the cause of much irritation. Long hair, rosy cheeks, big round eyes, and the wearing of skirts and high heels are the expectations of ‘femininity’ in the society. However, women are starting to take off their ‘corsets’ of ‘femininity’ and enjoy freedom from it. What has brought about this change?
SFA, the Rulebreakers
“We are not flowers, we are flames.” SFA neither accepts society’s common stereotypes nor prejudices against gender. Instead, it works to change preexisting discriminatory ideas. From planning on-campus events to creating subway station advertisements, SFA not only represents Sookmyung’s feminist power, but also influences the entire society. SMT reporters met with SFA, holders of the key to the freedom for women, who desire worldwide change through feminist power.
Make the World Equal, "I Am the Feminist Politician"
Having suffered from oppression merely due to gender, women are acting in solidarity more than ever before. Women are encouraging each other. And there is one revolutionist who is lighting the fire on this courage through the power of politics and policy. “We are the wave”, she claims. No longer the calm before the storm, she is challenging the society in the name of equality, from Seoul to the whole of Korea Peninsula. SMT reporters met Shin Jiye, Co-Chairperson of the Green Party in Seoul Branch, to hear more about her cry.
