Blackstone interviewed by The Midst on 4B feminist movement

The Midst interviewed Amy Blackstone, a professor of sociology at the University of Maine, on the 4B feminist movement in Korea. “4B is made up of women in Korea who started to get fed up with the pressure to fix what the nation saw as the problem of low fertility,” Blackstone said. She added that this movement is similar to an earlier one responding to the country’s beauty standards, and when pushing back against societal expectations for women, it’s important to have community support.
