Solidarity with South Korean Lesbians!

In 2010, a lesbian woman in the military in South Korea was raped by her supervisor who said she needed to try men. She became pregnant and had to have an abortion. After that, a second man in the military raped her. This week, both men have been finally found found not guilty of rape by the Seoul Higher Military Court. You can read more details about what happened here in this petition by the victim’s girlfriend.

An English description of events is available here.

South Korean feminists have asked that we try our best to make western media aware of this injustice towards lesbians. Please consider any ways you can help draw attention to the issue!

The two hashtags for this issue on social media are: #군대_내_교정강간_무죄판결_규탄 #GetTheLOut
