House Of Sharing Visit
*Please email the address below ([masked]) to participate in this event!* We, the HoS International Outreach Team, have been offering English-language museum tours on a monthly basis since 2006, and we invite you to join us on our next one. Please meet us at Gangbyeon Station (Dong Seoul Bus Station) line number 2, exit 1 at 12pm on the day of the tour. We will take you to the House of Sharing by shuttle bus from there. Please bring KRW 15,000. (10,000 for the bus and 5,000 for museum entry) The bus will return to Gangbyeon Station after the tour. Cash Only After the tour, there may be an opportunity to meet the survivors and talk to them in an informal setting, depending on their condition that day. If a halmoni feels up to it, they may be willing to answer some questions or share some of their story. If not, we will organize another activity involving leaving a message for the halmoni. Again, if a halmoni feels up to it, they may join us and we can share our messages with them. (Please remember that the halmoni are all in their eighties and nineties, and suffering from various ailments, so sometimes a meeting isn't possible). The tour, subsequent discussions, and meeting with the survivors will be an informative and rewarding experience, and it will give you a historical perspective on current Korea-Japan relations and further insight on the many forms that violence against women can take.

활동 계획

Women's Justice Network in Korea is a group of socially minded individuals with an interest in social activism and women's rights. Though we are primarily concerned with seeking justice for the victims of Japanese sexual slavery during WWII (through engaging in protests, visiting educational facilities, spending time with some of the survivors, etc.), our scope is not limited to matters relating to the "comfort women." We encourage our members to post any information regarding events such as conferences, film screenings, museum tours, or any other events related to feminism, women's rights, and human rights, both in the Republic of Korea and internationally. We welcome anybody who thinks they have something to contribute, even if it's just strength in numbers.
