Korean Feminist candidate fares well in Seoul mayoral race despite opposition

Green Party candidate Shin Ji-ye who ran on a platform of feminism and the protection of animal rights surprised voters after finishing fourth in this year’s heavily contested Seoul mayor’s race. The feminist candidate won over 80,000 votes, according to the National Election Commission, fending off competition from the likes of left-wing candidate Kim Jong-min from the Justice Party. Shin is thought to be the first candidate in South Korea’s political history to openly run on a feminist platform.

Korea Green Party's 2018 elections for Korea's Seoul

On Jun. 13, South Korea is holding nationwide local elections. For the first time since its foundation in 2012, Green Party Korea candidates will appear on ballot papers across the country. 27-year-old Shin Ji-ye is the Green Party’s provisional candidate for the position of Seoul mayor. This position is seen as one of the most important political positions in the country, where around half of its 51.25 million population lives in Seoul or the areas surrounding it. The Green Party's election platform offer a valuable glimpse into the growing concerns of the country’s youngest, most progressive population. Shin believes she has a chance of winning Seoul. Three months before the vote, we met in the offices of Today Maker, Shin’s fledgling 3D printer manufacturing company, to hear more about her radical vision for one of Asia’s biggest cities and the heart of South Korea.
