Pulitzer Center grantee Anna Louie Sussman will visit Hunter College on October 4, 2023, to talk about her reporting on changing gender norms and fertility rates in South Korea. Sussman will visit classes, have lunch with journalism students, and speak with Hunter’s student news reporters.

Her project, The "Gender War" in South Korea, looks at the under-examined phenomenon of how gender dynamics in Korea have contributed to a retreat from marriage, and even from dating. This is due to what one scholar calls “the gender war”: the rising antagonism between women and men, which plays out both online and in real life. In a country with hardly any nonmarital births, marriage decline correlates with the birth rate.

Sussman was a Russell Sage Foundation Visiting Journalist in 2022, a 2022 New America fellow, and she has been the recipient of numerous grants, fellowships, residencies, and awards, including from the Logan Nonfiction Program, MacDowell, and the Fetisov Journalism Award, among others.

She was previously a staff reporter at The Wall Street Journal and Reuters. She has written for The New York Times, The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, The Atlantic, and other publications.
