    Here is a real example, although it is not with an U.S company and it is not a big case.

    My sister and brother-in-law have been running a small trading company in Taiwan for years. A few years ago, they attempted to expand business into Korea but failed. The reason was: when they went to Korea to talk to their potential Korean customer, they hired a female interpreter. The potential Korean customer, who is a male, thought my brother-in-law “looked down upon him” by hiring a female interpreter instead of a male one. Hence, the business negotiation failed.

    It sounds unreasonable, but it’s real. Sexual discrimination still prevails in Korea nowadays even when it comes to international business.

    I hope this small example helps you a little bit.
