ABSTRACT

This study explores the human rights system of women film workers in Sweden. Since the Metoo movement in 2017, it has had a huge impact on Sweden and Korea. However, while Sweden has led to institutionalization based on laws and policy related to women’s rights, Korea has not. So, the Swedish case needs to be analyzed. For the framework of research, the theoretical background was power resource theory and gender mainstreaming. Power resources theory can explain the inequal relationship between woman and man. The gender mainstreaming is a strategy and key paradigm affecting the women’s human rights system. Since 2014 the world’s first feminist government has established in Sweden, as gender mainstreaming strategy be carried out in all levels in all areas more actively. It also provided an opportunity for Metoo to bring the Swedish women’s organization back together and become a force. Especially in the film industry, actresses played a leading role in the Swedish women’s political empowerment. Sweden’s film industry produces films with women’s perspectives through the Bechdel Test, Gender disaggregated statistic and gender responsible budget with the power of gender mainstreaming, and many women are leading the film industry. However, despite the gender mainstreaming strategy in Korea, it has yet not to be applied in the film industry. Therefore, Korea needs to strengthen women’s human rights learning from Swedish Case.
