Red Lights, Big City Cont’d

Quick addendum to the earlier post about the subjugation of women.

The incendiary but essential blog ExpatHELL picked up this nugget from the Joongang Ilbo:

The country’s law states in Article No. 297 that a rape charge is applied when a person has sex with a “woman” by using violence or threats.

In Korea, once a woman is married, she is typically considered part of a family, which then in a way makes her no longer considered a woman.
The argument before the Supreme Court is whether a wife should be included in the category of woman.

I would love to hear how this stacks up against the courts in Saudi Arabia.

If they decide that women are chattel, will Korea amend all copies of the Bible to consolidate the 9th and 10th commandments?
