March 17 @ 7:00 pm

At 7 p.m. on Friday, March 17, at the National Park Theater, learn about the Haenyos, Korean women who dive for shellfish off the coast of Jeju island. This centuries-old tradition enables women to support their families without affecting the ecosystem. However, the tradition is at risk of disappearing.
