Article about South Korean single moms

Recommended Posts



I hope these women can help make a significant change.


Our Korean exchange students are usually quite shocked when I mention that once my boys are older, I want to volunteer to work with teenage mothers. When I ask what happens to pregnant teens in Korea, they tell me that they drop out of school and do not have a good life, and if they do give birth to the child they usually give the child away. (Their words.)

FYI, not all single mothers started out as unwed mothers.



You're absolutely right. There is some concern about the term "unwed" and so I switched it out for "single", but you're totally right. And, the stigma is really directed at moms who became moms "out of wedlock".
