AsiaX with Elise Hu: How Holding Back East Asia's Women Holds Back Asia

https---cdn.evbuc.com-images-43492126-217748549335-1-original.jpg

South Korea and Japan are among Asia — and the world’s — largest economies and seem futuristic on the surface: lightning fast internet speeds, pristine public transportation, and cultural exports of skincare and pop music that are known the world over. But for women, these societies are often anachronistic, and the lack of equality for South Korean and Japanese women can have alarming societal costs.

The Asia Society Policy Institute is pleased to host NPR Seoul correspondent Elise Hu for a discussion of these and other issues at the next installment of ASPI’s AsiaX speaker series. From her vantage point as the founding bureau chief for NPR’s Seoul office and a correspondent responsible for covering both Koreas and Japan, Elise will discuss the gender disparities in both societies, their long-term consequences, and potential solutions that could address the problems before it’s too late.

This is the fourth session of the Asia Society Policy Institute's AsiaX speaker series and networking event for Asia policy professionals and young executives. AsiaX is focused on bringing fresh ideas from up-and-coming Asian innovators and experts to the Washington D.C. policy debate. These private events bring together young leaders from across the government, business, and policy communities to discuss emerging trends and issues that are re-shaping Asia and the U.S. role in the region.

Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Where: The Loft at 600 F
