“Thinking out Loud: Race, Gender, and Han”
Dr. Grace Ji-Sun Kim
“Our society has come a long way in terms of fighting racism and sexism, but it still has a long way to go. As our society faces suffering and pain due to racism and sexism, a Korean term, han tries to capture this suffering. Han signifies a difficult emotion and term but can best to described as ‘unjust suffering.’ All people suffer, but no one should suffer because of the color of their skin or their gender. “
