Asian ‘Sisterhood’

Learned something  interesting yesterday.  I know Korean women keep their maiden names even when they marry- a measure I thought of a greater degree of ‘liberation’ from their Japanese ‘sisters’.  But no, I am wrong as a Korean man explained to me before work started.  Instead this custom as the thought goes,  is a woman coming in by marriage to a family is thought so unworthy that she does not even deserve to take her new family’s name.
