[Hat tip to Jay Hughes for this article]: We've blogged about the perils of sex selection and the predicament of fewer girls being born in Asian and Indian countries, but this article brings some hopeful news:

"In the early 1990s, among Korean women who had already borne two or more children, the sex imbalance was as high as 206 boys for every 100 girls. In those times, it was common for married Korean men to feel ashamed if they had no sons, some went so far as to divorce wives who did not bear boys." Full article here.
