    "My life is not your porn:"
    A simple message from the tens of thousands of women
    gathered for a mass demonstration in Seoul on Saturday.
    They came to condemn the flood of so-called "molka":
    videos of women in hotel rooms, public restrooms and changing areas
    filmed without their knowledge and shared across the internet in South Korea.
    "I've always been afraid that there could be spy cameras in the toilets at my office
    or underneath the desks,
    but that's not all.
    There have been many in public bathing areas,
    gyms, swimming pools, changing rooms,
    even just in the street."
    The prevalence of such videos has prompted serious alarm.
    The number of spycam crimes reported to police has grown
    from around 1,100 in 2010 to over 6,500 last year,
    leading to the creation of special police units
    to check public bathrooms for hidden cameras.
    In July, a 43-year-old man was arrested after secretly filming female guests
    with miniature cameras for years at a Seoul motel.
    In June, a 34 year-old-man was arrested
    after filming women in toilets and selling thousands of the videos online.
    South Korean women are demanding tougher punishments for tech-savvy "peeping toms"
    most of whom receive only fines or suspended jail sentences.
    Saturday's demonstration was the largest yet
    since monthly gatherings began in May,
    with organizers estimating some 70,000 attendees.
    The global #MeToo movement has opened up an unprecedented outpouring of female lead activism
    in the typically culturally conservative nation.
    Still, many participants attend the demonstrations with their faces covered
    to avoid the harassment and bullying
    that often results if they're identified online.
