CAF092014TinyShowing many images of families and the Korean War, Maija discusses her autobiographical novel/love story set in Korea.  She relates how the stories of six-hundred-plus-year patriarchal tradition portrayed in the book relates to the realities of today’s S. Korea, the high-tech world economic power.  The power of the values still operating today are evident in many social issues, particularly in the population imbalance and gender inequality areas.  Her TEDx Talk capsulizes this view.  http://youtu.be/GFD-6JFLF5A
