The word [a North Korean defector] used [to describe the women in South Korea] meant tough, almost obnoxious. He said it was radically different from women of the North, who are so traditional. [Even in the North, however, t]heir husband’s income is just not enough.

South Korean women have been pushing and fighting their way out of it, while North Korean women never had that way out.
