Rejecting Sex in South Korea

South Korean YouTubers have divided the country by vowing to reject sex, babies, and marriage.
 
Their SOLOdarity movement may sound extreme, but it reflects a growing trend of South Korean women rejecting the trappings of traditional family life. It’s bad timing for a government hoping to reverse a declining birth rate. The average South Korean woman now has just 1.1 children.
 
But SOLOdarity’s founders say the country’s pervasive gender inequality has forced them to rebel.
 
"If this does affect society, then perhaps the government will look at what women really need," said Baeck Ha-na, a host of the SOLOdarity YouTube channel.
