President's message
 

  The Second World War had been ended with the atomic bomb which remained as a representative of nuclear energy on everyone’s mind all the time.
   The word, “nuclear power “ itself was just started to be known to the world as the bomb with terrifying explosive and distructive power rather than very benefivial energy and so it is the fact that most people obscurely are afraid of the nulear power or radioactivity. In particular, it is said that generally women are doubtful of the safety of nuclear power and radioactivity. It is because women play an important role in the society that have a baby, give a birth and bring up the children, and therefore originally have the sense of defense and rejection to danger. So if we talk about nuclear energy and its applications in a position of only women and at the same time in a position of professionals working in the area of nuclear energy, it would be effective and also I think it is our responsibility to solve this problem.
  Women In Nuclear (WIN) is the association of women working professionally in the fields of nuclear energy and application of radiation in order to contribute to give a better understanding about nuclear energy to the general public. Actually it was very successful that women inform the benefits of the nuclear energy and radiation to the general public.
The number of women is increasing working in nuclear power plant, atomic energy research institute and other area related to the nuclear energy, and now the population has reached a hundred and fifty in Korea. The association of women working professionally in Korea, WIN-Korea started on 7th November 2002 supporting the goal of WIN-Global. Currently WIN-Korea has 80 or more regular members and associate members as men who support the goal of WIN-Korea.
  We, WIN-Korea members, will do our best of our work with the confidence that nuclear energy and application of radiation can be used very beneficially to solve the energy crisis, food shortage and environmental disruption. Also, we will endeavor to inform the general public, especially women and children, on nuclear energy and the application of radiation through information exchange.

Thank you very much.

President, Sung-Woon Hong
