Sexual violence has long been considered as a private or unimportant matter, shameful sexual problem, matter of female chastity, or lies told by women, thus, has not been brought to light until recently. Furthermore, Korean society's distorted sexual traditions and gender perception prevented victims from receiving any appropriate assistance or support. In 1991, when not many people perceived sexual violence as a violation of sexual self-determination, Korea Sexual Violence Relief Center opened its door with hopes of changing such hostile environment.
KSVRC is a women's activist organization who aims to reveal the nature of sexual violence and to fight against such violence; it is a matter of social structure, resulting from power relations between gender. We have assisted and supported sexual violence survivors through various activities, including, but not limited to, more than 75,000 counsels, proposals for enactment and revision of related laws, policy monitoring and evaluation, publishing, and education programs.
