In the 2014 World Economic Forum Global Gender Gap Report, South Korea was ranked 117 out of 142 countries on gender equality.

Korea Real Time, a publication from the Wall Street Journal, asked South Koreans of all backgrounds about gender equality. Most younger women said there is still a long way to go, while some older women wished for days long gone. Almost every person interviewed agreed women are commonly discriminated against in the workplace.
