IWD – Girls & Education

Students wearing traditional hanbok dresses bow as they attend a graduation and coming-of-age ceremony at the Dongmyeong girl’s high school in Seoul on February 12, 2015. Around 500 students attended the ceremony, which signifies a child’s passage into adulthood and aims to teach participants etiquette and the acceptance of responsibilities. Once a widespread tradition, coming-of-age ceremonies are increasingly rare with the event now usually observed in various less traditional ways.
