So, according to the Hankyoreh, Gyeonggi-do Provincial Council proposed that all USFK personnel based in the province undergo training to boost their gender awareness. And it appears USFK will soon accept this and begin expanding sex crime prevention training, which so far had focused on new recruits, to all officers and men. This gender awareness training is a program that teaches soldiers the difference between men and women and prevents prostitution, sexual assault and other sex-related crimes.
Oh, and a Provincial Council committee also passed a resolution that would call on the government to improve the “unequal” SOFA. This resolution will go to a plenary session on March 16.
According to the provincial military liaison office, the province is currently talking with 2ID about the gender awareness program.
