Thousands of South Korean women protest against 'spycam pornography'
Korean women took to the streets in order to urge the government of South Korea to investigate and tackle the widespread issue of 'molka' (spy cam pornography).
Over 20,000 South Korean women are currently demanding action from the government to tackle an ongoing epidemic of 'spycam pornography' in which women are secretly videotaped without consent, in private spaces such as bathrooms, offices, and hotels. What's more, they are also criticizing and protesting the possible police bias that exists towards men compared to women.
Back in early May, an incident came to light in which an image of a male model who was posing nude for a drawing class at Hongik University, was uploaded online without the man's consent. Since then, the photo was removed and the university apologized for the incident, and the woman who secretly filmed and distributed the photo was arrested.
Seeing this quick action from the police, victims of the 'spycam porn', largely women, couldn't help but notice the different treatment and handling of such an issue involving between males and females which eventually led to the uproar and protests.
Meanwhile, this is the second time in which the protest took place with the first being back on May 19th.
