4,0 de 5 estrelas Eye opening into sexism in another culture
Avaliado no Reino Unido em 13 de junho de 2020
I went into this book with no idea what to expect and came out of it with my mind blown. This book provides you with the experience women can face in South Korea and I was shook.

Throughout the book we see how differently women are treated in topics such as:

Pregnancy – Women are under a lot of pressure to provide a male child and can be shunned by families for giving birth to a girl. We also learn of the high abortion rate of foetuses that are female and how it is treated sort of like an illness.

Family – Historically female children would give up education at a point to work and pay for their male siblings education. The boys are given more opportunity and treated differently in family settings.

Sexual Harassment – From touchy feely teachers, to fellow male students following her home, to women’s bodies being becoming a subject of interview discussion. And what is worse it is the women who are blamed for it, the accountability sits with the woman.

<i>Jiyoung grew up being told to be cautious, to dress conservatively, to be “ladylike”. That it’s your job to avoid dangerous places, times of day and people. It’s your fault for not noticing.</i>

Work – Large differences in pay between genders, men being promoted over more qualified women, being pressured to give up work to have children.

The story follows the life of Kim Jiyoung from her birth in 1982 up until 2016 when this book was originally published. At every stage of Jiyoungs life she is met with systemic misogyny which she is either blamed for or handled as a simple fact of life. Following Kim Jiyoung’s life presented me with a strange mix of emotions; sadness and rage filled me at the way she’s treated. But I also rooted for Jiyoung and there were times she made me laugh and I celebrated every success she had when the odds aren’t in her favour. The implication on mental health from her experiences was a tough one to follow and if there’s anything to criticise about this book is I’d have loved to understand more of how the experiences we are told about in the book impacted her mental health.

We start the story from Jiyoung’s husbands POV as he starts to notice her exhibit unusual behaviour before we go back in time to the beginning of Jiyoung’s story. I really liked the representation of Jiyoung’s mother, the author has given us a reference to the generation before Jiyoung. I found Jiyoung to be very likeable and she is without a doubt relatable, she is a women who wants an education, a job to bring in her own income and fulfilment in her life. Which is something we are after. Yet she is faced with challenge after challenge for being female, a journey we share with her throughout the pages. I found the ending to be disappointing, not because it is a bad ending but for what if signified. I won’t give it a way but where I thought there was light at the end of the tunnel I felt became an illusion with ingrained beliefs shining through right at the end.

<i> The world had changed a great deal, but the little rules, contracts, and customs had not, which meant the world hadn’t actually changed at all. </i>

The format of the book is slightly different to other books you may have read. It is a combination of facts and fiction, the author has used genuine resources which are referenced throughout the book to back up the content. The references allow further opportunity to educate ourselves on the gender inequality faced in South Korea. From other books I’ve read, such as, The Tattooist of Auschwitz and The Sisters of Auschwitz the mixture of fact and fiction really works for me as a reader and ignites an interest in the topic that I may not have had prior to reading. The references in this book for me highlighted the issues faced by women more clearly than if there wasn’t a reference as it would be potentially hard to distinguish between the truth and the story.

This book covers the topic of Sexism and Misogyny in South Korea which is a heavy hitting topic but it’s important to also remember the story is of a girls life which the author has accurately reflected as a whole life and there are sections that are utterly charming and funny. Good is presented with the bad and it’s hard to not have a connection with Jiyoung by the end.

For all the emotions I felt reading this book, I genuinely enjoyed reading it. Not because of the inequality it represents but because it is simply a well written engaging book and it has given me the opportunity to learn a little something about a part of the culture it has been written to represent. I think this is a very valid book that deserves to be read to educate ourselves on the experiences of others and reflect how topics represented in this book are alive in other cultures or how they’ve developed through history. I can only recommend you get yourself a copy and give it a read.
