South Korean ‘comfort women’ were recently remembered at an event in Melbourne as part of ’16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence,’ a movement that began at Rutgers University in 1991 but is now sponsored by the UN. As it does every year, the campaign kicked off around the world on November 25th, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and continued through International Human Rights Day on December 10th. On Friday, November 25th, Korea FM reporter Chance Dorland attended the Amnesty International Pop Culture Network sponsored event ‘Fundraising Kpop Cocktail Party‘ and spoke with Yena Hong, a South Korean studying in Melbourne, who organized the fundraiser.
