The University of San Francisco 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.
