South Korea’s rapid transformation into one of the richest countries in the world, has left women trailing behind.
They are paid on average a third less than men, giving South Korea the worst gender pay gap of any rich country in the world.
Upon entering office, South Korea’s new President Yoon Suk-yeol scrapped government gender quotas, declaring people would be hired on merit, not s*x.
He is now trying to abolish the government’s Gender Equality Ministry, which supports women and victims of s****l a*****t, claiming it is obsolete.
More than 800 organisations have come together to protest against the closure, arguing it could have a damaging impact on women’s lives.
Warning: this contains distressing content and discusses s****l a*****t and attempted suicide.
