Sticky Activism: Online Misogyny And Feminist Movements In South Korea
The Center for Asia Pacific Studies welcomes Jinsook Kim for a discussion on the ways in which digital media have become a key battlefield in the intense cultural and political conflict between feminists and misogynists that has been playing out in South Korea since 2013. Dr. Kim will show how new modes of feminist activism on and offline have contested the pervasive misogyny in the country by increasing public interest in gender issues and extending the reach of feminism. Focusing on the concept of “sticky activism,” Dr. Kim argues that these efforts have contributed to the formation of feminist counterpublics that have served to articulate gendered discontent with misogynistic culture and society and to challenge deep-seated gender violence in the country.
