○ March 8th International Women’s Day is a day that the world, including the United Nations, celebrates together and has been

a legal anniversary in Korea since 2018. The Korean Women’s Festival, which began in 1985, was a venue for eradicating

discrimination against women and promoting women’s rights and a space to capture the demands of each era. In addition, the

Korean Women’s Festival has become a venue for everybody to enjoy, including not only feminist activist groups but also the

citizens.

 

○ The 38th Korean Women’s Festival 2023 to celebrate International Women’s Day is a place to unite the voices of feminist citizens and women nationwide, demanding gender equality and democracy against the current backlash of gender equality policy and

implementation system. In addition, it will serve as a forum for public opinion and a venue for festivals for those in solidarity to

change the paradigm of this society by actively sharing and linking intersecting agendas in various areas.

 

○ The 38th Korean Women’s Festival is held at March 4 (Saturday), 2023 in Seoul Plaza. Booth programs with various issues and

citizens, and exhibition programs of gender equality related organizations and institutions’ promotional materials are scheduled.

As a pre-stage, the open stage – Feminist Bedlam - ‘Sharing the pre-stage of the 3.8 Women’s Festival’ will present songs and

remarks by feminist performers. During the main event, there will be an announcement of the winners of the ‘Feminist Activism of

the Year Award’, ‘Special Award’, ‘Steppingstone for Gender Equality’, and comments from winners, as well as the announcement of ‘Obstacle to Gender Equality’. Also, the ‘March 8th Women’s Declaration’ will be announced, along with performances by Solidarity

of Minorities’ Pungmul band ‘Jangpoong’, Lee So-seon Choir, and a performance involving all participants. A parade is scheduled

after the performance. We ask you for your interest and participation in the 38th Korean Women’s Festival, where you can recognize each other’s existence and feel empowered and strengthen solidarity across generations, regions, and experiences.
