The Neglected North Korean Crisis: Women's Rights in North Korea

North Korea’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs receive much of the international community’s attention, often relegating the issue of human rights to the sidelines. Despite North Korea’s constitutional promise of gender equality, women face discrimination, pervasive harassment and extensive violation of their rights by the regime. Meanwhile, the significant role they play in marketizing the economy and liberalizing society is underestimated.
