Teodora Gyupchanova discusses life for the second sex in the DPRK
December 24th, 2018

Month in Review

Women face extraordinary hardship in North Korea, including little to no access to sanitary products and basic health services.

Indeed, these challenges are ingrained into the DPRK’s highly patriarchal society, that endures despite the presence of high-level women in the Kim regime and laws and state policies that purport to make women more equal.

In this episode of the NK News Podcast, the Database Center for North Korean Human Rights’ Teodora Gyupchanova discusses NGO work in South Korea, getting outside information into the DPRK, and the complex challenges that women face in the North.

Teodora Gyupchanova is Director of International Communications at the Database Center for North Korean Human Rights (NKDB) in Seoul.

About the podcast: The “North Korea News Podcast” is a weekly podcast hosted exclusively by NK News, covering all things DPRK: from news to extended interview with leading experts and analysts in the field and insight from our very own journalists.
