Although South Korea has elected its first female president, women’s political representation in the country is still low. This report identifies and explains the reason for women’s low political participation from three perspectives. By looking at the institutional, political and parliamentary culture strands the study analyzes and suggests the following solutions. First, increasing quotas for women, expanding female proportional representation, and amending the constitution to include gender equality representation should be reviewed institutionally. Second, ways of improving transparency and women candidates in public nomination, and encouraging women into political life should be discussed in the political field. Third, elevating more female members in standing committees and writing new laws and regulations regarding gender equality should be considered at the parliamentary stage.
