Church Center for the United Nations, 8th floor

2013 marks the 60th anniversary of the armistice agreement, which halted the Korean War but left the Korean peninsula divided, millions of families separated, and both sides increasingly militarized. The panel will explore the consequences of the unended Korean War and militarization of the peninsula on the lives of women, why women’s movements must provide leadership in this moment, and strategies they are using such as UNSC 1325.

Speakers include: Gyung Lan Jung of Women Making Peace, South Korea, Hosu Kim of CUNY Staten Island, Christine Ahn of the Korea Policy Institute and Global Fund for Women and June Kim of United Methodist Committee on Relief.

Co-sponsored by Korea Policy Institute, United Methodist Women & Global Fund for Women
