Harim from Korea: Everyday A Girl
By Harim Lee
This is the story of Harim Lee for #EverydayAGirl, as shared via UN Online Volunteers.
My name is Harim LEE and I am 20 years old and from South Korea.
I’m really interested in women rights or other social problems regarding the minority. For this reason, I am in Yonsei Women Student Council and working for the rights for minor people such as the disabled, the sexual minority, sexual violation, etc. Today the council holds a seminar watching movie related with the issue of gender and sexuality.
After the movie seminar, the council carries out a meeting.
Finishing the all tasks, I’m waiting for the bus to go to my home.
For my school is very far from my hometown, I’m living with my university friend in Seoul. She and I talk with together everyday and share some concerns or daily events.
The story of Everyday a Girl, tagged #EDAG, is a glance into the lives of ordinary women through a series of poignant photo stories. These series of images will visually express the roles, challenges, activities and duties that females in diverse communities face in their daily lives.

This campaign highlights that gender equality and equity, woman empowerment, and safety for the girls is key to the world’s socio-economic development
