just sad. . . with a funny aftertaste.

The newly elected president of Korea (to be inaugurated in February. . . I think) is thinking of closing the ministry of women's equality. Read this page. What he ought to do, I often think, is to give it some actual teeth for social change. The state here's pretty shabby, when it comes to the international gender equality measure.

Sigh.

I'm not sure which would be worse: if this cover-story is true, or if this is how far the Japanese former-PM would go to deny his resignation was due to systematic party failure.
