Many Kinds of Discrimination Against Women in North Korea

first_img [imText1]One thing that I have become quite comfortable with is what we call in North Korea “culture of maid.” Although there were not many times I called for a “maid” (paid housekeeper), women who are busy working can call a keeper to ask for help on kitchen work and earn money in the area she can be best at and the housekeeper can earn money doing housework, so both sides end up in a win-win situation. However, in North Korea, having a maid in a private household was considered as “discrimination against human beings” and selling and buying with money is one of the elements of the “rotten” capitalism, thus they abolished such the maid cultures since long ago. This created an uncomfortable situation where the women who are busy working are too busy having to work at home too and those women who are good at housework have ability to earn money but cannot. Kim Jong Il, Also a Leader for the Discrimination Against WomenThe irony here, is that in the society where the “maid culture” had been abolished for so long for it was considered as discrimination against human being, allowed the high level cadres to secretly have maids at their households since the beginning. In conclusion, the government had been allowing the high level cadres to discriminate human being. Perhaps for this reason, compare to South Korea where the remnant of discrimination against human being – maid culture – had remained all along, the actual discrimination against human being is much more prevailing in the society of North Korea. From men’s perspective, women are not human beings. A well known evidence of that is Kim Jong Il’s remark to the former South Korean president Kim Dae Jung on the 6.15 Inter-Korea Summit Meeting of 2000. To Kim Dae Jung who flew over to North Korea, Kim Jong Il said that DJ was a lucky man who had a the fortune of having a good wife. At the same time, he said this. “All women have to be good for is laundry and raising kids.”Kim Jong Il did not hesitate to show his belief of laundry and raising kids are menial works men must not do yet women are subordinates beings without vision (future dreams) who must devote themselves into laundry and raising kids. This is not only what Kim Jong Il believes, but it is a prevalent thought among North Korean men. Compared to men, women receive inhumane treatments in North Korea. The women who receive such inhumane treatments are also categorized into different levels. Women without a husband are treated worse than married women, and the daughter-in-law is considered as a “slave” by the mother-in-law. Women who have no job are considered lower than those who have, women who have not graduated from university are considered lower than those who have. Women from rural area are considered lower than those from city and women living outside Pyongyang are considered lower than those living in Pyongyang. We Must Build a Society Where Common Sense Work in North Korea For such kind of discrimination, when I stayed with a defector family for about ten months in Yanbian after I defected from North Korea, the husband of the host family showed all sorts of disrespect and maltreatment to me and my son because I was a woman who did not have a husband. For such kind of discrimination, my mother in law frequently searched through the pockets of my clothes hanging in my closet and disregarded the pregnant daughter-in-law but ate delicious food with “her family only.” This kind of mentality prevails, even after defection. A defector woman used to tell me she wishes to divorce her husband if she had a chance whenever she met me although her husband helped her a lot in the housework. I asked her why for he helps her so well but she answered me that her husband does not regard her as a human being and that she can no longer stand his simultaneously mean and nice treatments. Simply abolishing the maid culture cannot solve human discrimination against human beings; changing the human consciousness can only solve it. However, North Korea made a mistake and believed that just as materialism it wishes to eradicate the problem could be overcome by eradicating what appears to the problem, for it believed “conscious lied in the physical phenomenon.” Their thoughts caused serious social discrimination and built hostility and segregation within the society. For this reason the society has become a place where nobody can easily live in. The women who can be employed with the kitchen work they are familiar with – professional housekeepers! Only when those women not as the targets to be discriminated but accept and respect them as another kind of professionals would North Korea become a livable land where the common sense makes sense.

Fetzer Vineyards Announces Installation of Regenerative BioFiltro BIDA® Water Filtration System,…

first_imgLinkedin Email Facebook Home Industry News Releases Fetzer Vineyards Announces Installation of Regenerative BioFiltro BIDA® Water Filtration System, Using…Industry News ReleasesWine BusinessFetzer Vineyards Announces Installation of Regenerative BioFiltro BIDA® Water Filtration System, Using Worms & Microbes to Treat Winery WastewaterBy Press Release – April 6, 2016 98 0 Pinterest ReddIt Twitter AdvertisementLeading Regenerative Business Is First American Winery to Use Innovative Water System at ScaleHOPLAND, Calif., April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Fetzer Vineyards, a leader in regenerative winegrowing, is revolutionizing the way U.S. wineries conserve water, announcing today that it will install the BioFiltro BIDA® System at its Mendocino winery. In doing so, Fetzer Vineyards will become the first American winery to use the innovative, closed-loop biological wastewater treatment system to process 100% of its winery wastewater. Powered by billions of earthworms working rapidly in concert with beneficial microbes, the BIDA® System will begin processing Fetzer Vineyards’ wastewater during the 2016 harvest season, accruing energy savings up to 85% over current wastewater treatment technologies and optimizing water conservation measures in support of the fight against climate change.“It’s essential that we constantly ask ourselves if there is a better, more efficient and more regenerative way to approach our business, including the way we work with water,” said Giancarlo Bianchetti, CEO of Fetzer Vineyards. “BioFiltro offers a compelling process that aligns with our business goals as well as our overarching objective to leave the world a better place than we found it.”See full infographicImplementing the BioFiltro BIDA® SystemBioFiltro’s patented BIDA® System is a passive aerobic bioreactor that catalyzes the digestive power of microbes and selected species of red earthworms to naturally remove up to 99% of contaminants from Fetzer Vineyards’ wastewater, in as little as four hours. The chemical-free system consumes significantly less electricity than traditional wastewater treatment technologies like aeration ponds, which require constant electricity to pump and circulate water. The BIDA® System works efficiently year-round in spite of seasonal fluctuations in wastewater flow like those seen in the wine industry, and generates compost-enhancing castings from worm digestion, returning nutrients to the soil.Working with Worms to Fight Climate ChangeGlobal studies show that water scarcity and water stress are increasing, and as much as 15% to 35% of human withdrawals of water for agriculture are considered unsustainable.1 Achievement of climate change-related commitments like those made at last year’s Paris Climate Conference (“COP21”) will require that businesses strategically manage their water footprints for maximum efficacy while mitigating negative impacts. Natural, regenerative solutions such as the BIDA® System offer a new paradigm for water treatment systems, delivering closed-loop mechanisms that efficiently process wastewater on site and restore it to beneficial use, without significant energy output or emissions.Innovating Towards Water Positive Operations“Innovating to naturally manage our water footprint is an important step in our journey to become Water Positive, essential to our goal of Net Positive operations by 2030,” said Josh Prigge, Director of Regenerative Development for Fetzer Vineyards, who recently advocated for carbon-neutral winegrowing practices on a global scale at COP21. “With this new system we’ll treat some 15 million gallons of water a year, with significant efficiency gains—and bring things full-circle with enhanced compost for our soils and clean water for vineyard and landscape irrigation. It’s a win-win.”Research shows that a majority of global consumers, and especially Millennials, support companies that are committed to minimizing environmental impacts and that prioritize sustainable approaches to operations.2 To share more about its water initiatives, Fetzer Vineyards developed a new page on its website containing facts about agricultural water use and details about the company’s water policy support. Visit for more on Fetzer Vineyards’ water initiatives, including its adoption of BioFiltro’s BIDA® treatment system and its support for water conservation research and advocacy through collaborations with groups like the Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable (BIER) and Ceres’ Connect the Drops, both of which were commended for their water policy efforts at the White House Water Summit on Building a Sustainable Water Future in the United States on March 22, 2016.1 Source: World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Water Facts and Trends2 Source: 2015 Nielsen Global Corporate Sustainability ReportAbout Fetzer VineyardsA pioneer in regenerative winemaking, Fetzer Vineyards continues its legacy of hard work, rebellious thinking and crafting wines that make a difference. Since its founding in 1968, Fetzer Vineyards has consistently developed and implemented practices that are environmentally friendly, socially responsible and ultimately regenerative, becoming the world’s largest winery to receive B Corporation certification, in 2015. B Corp certification standards, developed by the non-profit B Lab, are widely recognized as the highest standards for social and environmental responsibility in business. Ultimately, Fetzer Vineyards strives for the perfect relationship between land, climate and vine to regenerate communities and bring wines of remarkable quality and character to the table.

Email BOZEMAN – A federal judge has put on hold a settlement that would require the government to consider greater protections for hundreds of imperiled species.Attorneys said Tuesday that U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered the Obama administration to resume negotiations with environmentalists over the deal.The Center for Biological Diversity objects to the deal, saying it is unenforceable and leaves out important species of animals and plants.The settlement has been embraced by other conservationists as a breakthrough in addressing a decades-long backlog of action on species in danger of extinction.The agreement would give the Interior Department six years to consider whether more protections are needed for more than 800 plants and animals.The next hearing in the case is set for June 20.last_img read more
