On the morning of April 11, a special speech was held in room 101 of the SuRyon Faculty Building, This speech was matched SMU’s motto, ‘Gentle Power to Change the World’; the title of this speech was ‘Emotion, The Power of Reflection and Healing.’ The speaker was Lee Ju-hayng, a professor in the College of Humanities at the University of Suwon. She spoke for about one hour, and she emphasized that the main power in the 21st century is feminine power.
She said that, “These days, many modern people are so sensitive and busy because of masculine power which purses competition. The feminine power is special power to heal the wounds caused by this competition.” She also gave examples of how feminine power will embrace more people than masculine power. “You know of the non-violence movement championed by Mahatma Gandhi and the Dalai Lama. What is the point of sameness between them?
The answer is that they didn’t hate their enemies; they loved all people and kept their standpoints. As a result, their stand was saved and many people were moved by their actions. That is true. Feminine power will change many people. If you want to use feminine power, I recommend that you love other people. So students, love your neighbors. That is the best solution to lead the 21st century with feminine power.”
