[2] The Supreme Court acknowledged “invisible power” held by 54-year-old An -- at one time a strong presidential contender in the liberal bloc -- in using his authority and sexually assaulting the victim -- An’s secretary -- upholding an appeal court’s ruling.

[3] The landmark ruling is hailed as reaffirming the importance of  “gender sensitivity” in court proceedings involving victims of sexual crimes. It was also a victory for women’s rights activists who have fought against the culture that compels victims of sexual violence to “act like victims” to prove they have been sexually abused.

*landmark: 기념비적인
*be hailed as: -로써 환영받다
*reaffirm: 재확인하다

*overturn 판결을 뒤집다
*vulnerable 취약한
*subordinate 부하 직원
