The North Korea Freedom Coalition will host an event during the UN Commission on the Status of Women specifically to focus on the dire human rights situation for North Korean women. Sponsored by Jubilee Campaign USA, NKFC’s panel will bring personal testimonies and expert speakers to raise awareness and action by exposing what North Korean women suffer in both the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the People’s Republic of China.

Providing eyewitness testimony will be Eiko Kawasaki and Shinhae Oh, both North Korean Escapees. John Sifton of Human Right Watch, Ann Buwalda of Jubilee Campaign, and Greg Scarlatoiu of the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK), will provide expert testimony.

Eiko Kawasaki at age 17 left Japan as one of the over 93,000 North Korean returnees lured to the “paradise” of North Korea only to experience the tragic reality of life under the Kim regime. For over 40 years, Kawasaki studied, worked, married and started a family in the oppressive regime until she finally fled in 2003 to return to Japan where she has become a tireless advocate for human rights by founding “Korea of All” and most recently chairing Action for Korea United-Japan. She has led efforts with other returnees to seek legal remedy for their suffering including complaints filed in the Tokyo District Court and at the International Criminal Court in the Hague against the North Korean leader.

Shinhae Oh, born and raised in rural North Korea, knew nothing of freedom and human rights. Nonetheless her mother raised her to dream big and transcend possibilities. At the age of 17, she took on the toughest journey of her life to see the world beyond an isolated life in North Korea. She encountered heartless treatment as an undocumented defector living in China, where she felt disillusioned from seeing how the world functioned to benefit only those in power. Throughout the unbelievable journey, she came to realize that she has the fundamental right to live a better life, to raise her voice, and to have her dignity respected. She strongly believes that everyone deserves to live according to their values regardless of class, gender, status, race, and nationality. She desires to live a life that uplifts others beyond their imagination. She is currently enrolled at a Master of Divinity program at a seminary in Chicago.

The session will also highlight specific recommendations on action that can be taken from expert speakers and the release of the findings of the Jubilee Campaign’s CSW 64 report, which provides detailed information that the DPRK and PRC are failing to meet their international obligations to end gender-based inequality, discrimination, and violence against North Korean women. To maximize impact, visits to key UN Missions are also planned.

But, to make this all possible, we need your help!

Your generous donation will help cover transportation costs for witnesses and event expenses so that the suffering of North Korean women will be addressed during this March’s 64th Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.

We hope that you can find it in your heart to donate as much or as little as you can to this important effort.

We also hope that you will be able to join us at this event and witness for yourself the unforgettable story of Eiko Kawasaki and learn about the increasingly precarious situation for the women of North Korea. The event details are below:
