On all-women colleges and lawsuits

It would have been easy to let this story slip us by, but apparently two men are fighting to get into Ewha Law. Yes, this is Ewha Womans University (spelling and lack of apostrophe, for the record, are both intentional and kept for historic reasons, according to Wikipedia) we're talking about here. A clip from the Joongang Daily story:

According to the court, the men said that “Unless the result of the court’s review of the petition we made earlier comes out before applications currently open for 2010 close, male law school applicants will have their right to equal education infringed upon.” They say Ewha is involved in “outright sexual discrimination.”

BIWA (Busan International Women's Association)

The Busan International Women's Association is a charitable social and cultural organization open to women living in the Busan and Kyungsang Namdo area of South Korea. As a non-profit organization we raise money to help those in the local Korean community who are in need.

At BIWA we encourage friendship, support, and cultural exchange between our international and Korean members by organizing a wide variety of social and cultural activities.

We have a number of regular activities like a monthly coffee morning at the HarborTown Starbucks in Haeundae Beach as well as a regular schedule of special activities. Join in the monthly BIWA luncheon, learn a new language, tour a local site, go on a hike or join the Mums & Tots for a play group outing.
