Gender discrimination prevalent in Korea

Here is a good article that discusses Korea's gender discrimination problems. Unfortunately my, admittedly anecdotal, experiences do not make me optimsitic on this issue. The Korean feminist movement is tiny. This is not to say that the traditional position of women in Korean society is one completely deviod of power. Although it is certainly a deeply patricarchal society outside of the home, within the home, Korean women wield considerable authority. Much more so, I would argue, than did women in traditional Western families.
