With many Asian Americans only being a generation or two, if at all, removed from Asia, it’s important to be informed about political and social movements there. Journalist E. Tammy Kim, who recently wrote the article #KoreaToo for The New York Review of Books, joins Chris in talking about the many layers and issues of the burgeoning movement for women’s progress in Korea, from workplace equality to domestic violence to spycam pornography to online culture wars.

E. Tammy Kim is a journalist who’s been published in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The New York Review of Books, and The Nation. Her articles can be read at her website.
