I don't think women should be treated as second-class citizens anywhere in the world.

As far as murder is concerned, however, South Korea has the 2nd lowest murder rate (after Japan) in East Asia, and a person is more than 5 times likelier to be murdered in the USA than in S Korea.

I thought South Korea had grown out of that Asian gender problem. Almost all of those countries used to treat women as second class citizens. I saw plenty of it myself. South Korea is one of the most U.S. developed countries over there and I didn't realize this was still going on there. Pretty sad!

The war on women lasts since long, and sexism still affects most of today's world.

One of the "general" examples, although statistics, analyses and rankings still vary much between the different sources:
