Women lose regardless who wins South Korean presidential election
Both liberal and conservative candidates are invoking the 'F-word' (feminism) as the source of many problems, trying to win over young men while taking the female vote for granted.
Moon Jae-in speaks at his inauguration ceremony as the 19th president of South Korea on May 10, 2017, in the country's capital, Seoul. The conservative and liberal presidential candidates are a long way from the politics of the outgoing president, who declared himself the country’s first 'feminist president,' raised the minimum wage, and cut the maximum work-week from 68 to 52 hours.
