Sexual violence is routinely dismissed as 'private,' 'unimportant,' or 'shameful' issue, and wrongly associated with 'female virginity', or' lies' told by women. Moreover, Korean society's traditions and distorted perceptions of sex and gender, has until recently, kept sexual violence unaddressed, preventing survivors from receiving appropriate assistance and support. The Korea Sexual Violence Relief Center (KSVRC), opened in 1991 when sexual violence was not yet understood as a violation of sexual self-determination. Since then, our doors have
remained opened with the hope of changing Korea's hostile environment towards survivors.
KSVRC is a women's activist organization that aims to reveal the nature of sexual violence as a structural problem caused by power relations between genders. We have assisted and supported sexual violence survivors through various activities, including providing more than 75,000 one-on-one counselling sessions, proposing the enactment and revision of laws, monitoring and evaluating policy, publishing materials, and running education programs.
