Republic of Korea: Submission to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women: 86th Pre-sessional Working Group, 27 February – 3 March 2023, List of Issues

In this briefing Amnesty International highlights six areas of concern. They include the lack of comprehensive anti-discrimination legislation; lack of access to safe abortion; government plans to abolish the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family; online gender-based violence; justice for survivors of Japanese military’s sexual slavery; and rights of transgender persons. It should not be seen as an exhaustive list of concerns but draws on Amnesty International’s ongoing research and advocacy on South Korea.
