Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982

A relatively quick read at under 200 pages, the novel was originally published in 2016 and is credited with launching Korea’s own #MeToo moment. It effectively communicates the realities Korean women face, especially discrimination in the workplace, rampant sexual harassment, and the nearly impossible challenge of balancing motherhood with career aspirations.
