Gender equality education was also held in this ceremony under the topic of 'Sexual Harassment during the internship'. Jung min Noh, chief of Korea University Gender Equality Center, said that there are many cases when students being harmed sexually in the region but can't reach out for help due to the embarrassment of how others will think about. Thus, the most important thing is the role of the member of society, they should help and give out a hand for the victims. There exists a prejudice that the victim is the one who provided the reason for the crime and thus they cannot announce unfair events happened to them. Therefore, if students notice school when unfair events happen, the school will do its best to help them.
