The students that produced and participated in this performance attend one of the best schools in South Korea. Many of the women find themselves in fields of study that are male-dominated, often facing harassment. Many of the men find themselves unable to pursue their studies of interest due to societal pressures. Among these issues, income inequality remains prevalent. These students proudly chose the phrase “Gender Equality“ to express their desire for the world to change to reflect their own experiences: that all people are equal and should always be treated that way. The recent president Park Geun-Hye promised to promote a “women’s revolution” which these students and many more are hoping for.
