Sulli: K-pop star’s death prompts outpouring of grief and questions over cyber-bullying – CNN

She was one of only a few celebrities to be publicly pro-choice when South Korea legalized abortion this year, was open about her own mental health struggles and insisted women shouldn’t have to wear bras if they found them uncomfortable.

sigh….

Plus, no country is perfect but Korea seems so un-modern in their attitudes towards women to these American eyes.

Trump’s “Nervous Nancy” photo shows his problem with powerful women – Vox

The president’s attempt to shame Pelosi likely worked among his base. But for most other Americans, it backfired. 

…“Nervous Nancy” is not what a lot of people saw in the photo. Instead, they saw a lone woman standing up to a roomful of men, giving them a piece of her mind. Soon, #PelosiOwnsTrump was trending on Twitter. The House speaker made the photo her Twitter cover image.

…The fact that Pelosi was able to use it so easily to her advantage is yet more evidence of a weakness with Trump’s approach — a lot of his alpha-male bullying tactics just don’t work very well on women. Unable to impugn their masculinity, Trump usually goes for attacks on their appearance or implying that they’re mentally ill. But women who have managed to attain positions of power in American society are used to these tactics — and, as Pelosi showed, they’re often more than capable of using Trump’s insults to their own advantage.
