"I was in North Korea for six months as a diplomat in the 1970s and you'd have the full range [of opinions] from government officials who would tell me, 'Wow there are a lot of beggars in Seoul,' [to] ordinary citizens you'd meet on the street and say, 'Are there really beggars in South Korea?' But I think even then people doubted that South Korea was quite the hellhole it was being portrayed...

"When I was in graduate school, you could have gone through my entire undergraduate program in security studies and not known that there were women on the planet earth. So I myself was brainwashed into thinking that issues of security and conflict and peace have nothing to do with what was going on with women. And it was a series of eye opening experiences, for example doing the research on...

"The most memorable industrial experience for me was at Elanora Signs and Engraving where I was taught by a Mechanical Engineer to...
