One of the many serious human rights violation committed in North Korea is the sexual abuse of female soldiers. Many women who are unable to enter university after graduation from middle school or highschool enlist in the military because the career prospects as a soldier is better than working as a laborer at collective farms.
Many female soldiers are often lured by their male superiors and political leaders by the offer of a position in the Labor Party. In North Korea, abandoning the opportunity to join the Labor Party is basically giving up the opportunity to become successful.
Consequently, North Korean female soldiers endure and put up with the sexual abuse and continue their military life for the hope of joining the Labor Party. If they resist the sexual abuse, they are forced out of the army, and sent back to their home town. As long as the existing North Korean regime subsists, sexual abuse on female soldiers in North Korea will continue.
