The visit was a courtesy call on Michiko Kanda, NWEC president made by President Taehyun Kim, who took office as KWDI president in June 2008. In an enviable cordial atmosphere the presidents exchanged their views and shared information on issues common to women and families in Japan and Korea, including the need to promote work-life balance and nurture women leaders in communities.
The visitors took a tour of the Women’s Archives Center as they were contemplating the establishment of a similar facility in their country. They were enthusiastic visitors who were actively engaged at all time in discussion, receiving explanation on how Women’s Digital Archive System published on the Internet worked or enjoying the special exhibition: “ Dawn of Higher Education for Japanese Women :Women who met the Challenge”. The visit was much appreciated here as it further deepened collaborative relations between the two institutions.

Ms. Liddle gave us the benefit of her experience and insight on Gender, Social Identity and British Politics at a meeting of our staff. She covered life in the U.K. and the kinds of challenges women encounter in Britain. An energetic exchange followed her lecture with the Center’s staff and volunteers.

On February 27, we welcomed Dr. Seungah Hong and Dr. Ryu Yeon Kyu from the Korean Women’s Development Institute (KWDI), with which the Center has a collaborative arrangement. After paying our president a courtesy call they were invited to inspect the facilities. Dr. Hong had been a panelist at an international forum organized by the Center held last February in Tokyo, but it was her first visit to the Center. We were pleased that she thought the Information Center for Women’s Education and the residence hall wings were well organized. They also met with the staff and had a very productive time discussing together some concrete ideas about a future exchange program between the two institutions.
