Will resurgent misogyny undo South Korea’s progress on gender equality?

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

South Korea’s by-elections on 7 April resulted in a landslide victory for the opposition People Power Party (PPP), including mayors in Seoul and Busan — the country’s two largest cities. The defeat of the ruling Democratic Party (DP) accelerates President Moon Jae-in’s descent into a lame-duck, a moniker that will stick him throughout his final year in office.
