K-FEMINISTS 'BOYCOTT' GIVING BIRTH OVER NEW PRESIDENT

Your thoughts?

With President-elect Yoon Seok-yeol's dramatic victory in the 20th presidential election on the 9th, women of the MZ generation (20th and 30th generation) are increasingly protesting. Feminists are even showing a move to 'boycott childbirth' during the term of President-elect Yoon Seok-yeol.


From the 9th to this day, the day after Yoon-elect took the presidency, the 'childbirth boycott movement' has been spreading in feminist communities. It is said that they will refuse to give birth to the president-elect Yoon Seok-yeol, who is of the conservative party.


On the 12th, in community A, posts were posted one after another saying, “I will not give birth during Yoon Seok-yeol’s tenure” and “let’s go to the level of no birth, not low birth.” Even in community B, which has a similar tendency, criticisms such as “If elected Yoon Seok-yeol becomes president, women’s rights would not be guaranteed, but marriage and childrearing are far away” and “Can you afford to have children when survival is a priority?” come.


Looking at the voter turnout by age in the exit polls of the 20th presidential election conducted by the three broadcasting companies (KBS, SBS, and MBC), 58.0% of women in their 20s and 49.7% of women in their 30s cast their votes for the liberal Democratic Party presidential candidate Lee Jae-myung. Compared to 33.8% and 43.8% of the votes for the conservative party's President-elect Yoon Seok-yeol, respectively.
