Seok-Yeol Yoon, ‘Feminist born in 1990’ Shin Ji-ye joins hands to target 2030 women’s hearts


“Feminist born in 1990” Shin Ji-ye (CEO of Korean Women’s Political Network) joined the big tent of presidential candidate Yoon Seok-yeol, the People’s Power.

Mr. Shin was recruited as the senior vice chairman of the New Era Preparation Committee, an organization directly under Candidate Yoon, and held a welcome ceremony on the 20th.

The recruitment of Mr. Shin was made by former Democratic Party leader Kim Han-gil, who leads the New Era Preparation Committee.

Shin started his political and social activities as a representative of the Korea Youth Group in 2004, and has been involved in the Green Party from running for the 20th general election in 2016 and running for mayor of Seoul in 2018.

Then, ahead of the 21st general election in 2020, he left the Green Party and ran as an independent for Seodaemun-gap in the general election.

In the last April 7 by-election for Seoul mayor, he ran as an independent and received 0.34% of the votes.

Shin, who was born in 1990 and is 31 this year, has been selected as a representative feminist in politics.

Today, candidate Yoon Seok-yeol and Chairman Kim Han-gil joined hands and resigned as the representative of the Korean Women’s Politics Network, but ‘feminist’ cannot be omitted from the modifier that describes him.

He also criticized the growing anti-feminist voices in the political circles, such as the abolition of the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family, on his personal YouTube channel before the recruitment.

Candidate Yoon’s promise to strengthen punishment for accusations of sexual assault also set a date.

In particular, he pointed out that the feminism ‘backlash’ (reaction) of this political circle started and became visible from the People’s Power Representative Lee Jun-seok.

As the online community ‘Efem Korea’ (Femco), which is mainly used by men in their 2030s, became the basis for Lee’s support, the misogynistic frame was accepted as a credible argument within the political circles.

On YouTube, he said, “Femco created a trend that ‘feminism that started in Megalia is male-hating and supremacist, promotes gender conflict, and even appears in convenience store promotional materials (the shape of a finger) to demean men’.” Femco like this made a big contribution to Lee’s election.”

He also hit the CEO directly, saying, “Because CEO Lee used hateful language or frames, many women felt a lot of threats in the field and in life.”

Shin also pointed out that Lee Jae-myung and Yoon of the Democratic Party of Korea are cooperating with this online backlash flow.

It means that the cause of amplifying the gender conflict lies in the candidates of the two sides, including the representatives of the conservative party, and it is a provocative direct hit.

In July, Shin held a press conference in front of the People’s Power Company, condemning President Lee’s promise to abolish the leisure ministry.

The shocking recruitment of ‘feminist Jiye Shin’ by Candidate Yoon and Chairman Kim is interpreted as a move to expand the support base of 2030 women who are still communist and casting boats in this election as well.

Previously, Candidate Yoon had also hired Professor Sujeong Lee, a criminal psychology expert, as the co-chair of the election committee to woo the votes of women in their 2030s.

CEO Lee publicly opposed the recruitment of Professor Lee.

In addition, it seems that it has nothing to do with the situation in which the public opinion of young people is not serious due to the suspicion of the false history of Kim Kun-hee, the spouse of candidate Yoon who has recently emerged.

It is an interpretation that the shocking ‘recruitment of Shin Ji-ye’ card can calm public opinion surrounding Kim and, in particular, try to reverse the votes for women in their 2030s.

In a welcome greeting as if he was conscious of the controversy surrounding Shin, candidate Yoon said, “Today, there are many talks about Shin Ji-ye’s recruitment, so we talked for a long time about the meaning and why we need to change the regime.” It becomes a party that realizes democracy only when discussions and conclusions are drawn from within.”

However, inside and outside the party, there is also a sense of opposition to the recruitment of Mr. Shin, raising concerns about whether the gender conflict will be transferred to internal conflict in the future.

Right away, CEO Lee met with reporters right after today’s closed meeting of the election committee and when asked about the recruitment of Mr. Shin, he replied with a firm expression, “I have no other opinion.”

After meeting with reporters, Lee later said, “Chairman Kim Han-gil had inquired about this issue over the weekend. I will respect Chairman Kim’s will in what I do in the new era.” It will be a situation where there will be no choice but to restrain and correct any remarks.”

He added, “I have no doubts about the good intentions of former Green Party (co-operation) Chairman Shin Ji-ye if he participates in the Uri Party and contributes to the election of Candidate Yoon,” he said. emphasized.

Online sites such as ‘Femco’ are also said to be boiling.

An official from the party said in a phone call, “The application for leaving the party is being distributed in online chat rooms or femco sites where a lot of young people gather. “He said.
