1st case of School MeToo, Yonghwa Girls' High school

In the beginning of the #MeToo movement in schools, graduates of Yonghwa Girls’ high school shared their experiences of being sexual harassed by male teachers. The high school students where these male teachers still worked learned this information from graduates. They posted the truth of being harrssed to SNS with the hashtag #스쿨미투 #school_metoo. Other girls’ school students banded together to call out sexual harassment and tell stories as witnesses. The movement was named 스쿨미투 (School MeToo) to try to sue these teachers and the school for sexual harassment.
