But when she moved to Australia she was denied a motel room, labelled a sex worker, and has since been asked if she eats dogs. Canadian-born Han is an obstetrician and gynecologist who moved to Melbourne in May, after being awarded a research fellowship to strengthen the public health response to violence against women. Han, who is of Korean ancestry, moved from Toronto, which she described to 10 daily as "so multicultural and progressive". So when her newly-purchased car got a flat tyre as she attempted to drive it from Brisbane to Melbourne on a Saturday, she was floored by the "overt discrimination and racial profiling" that ensued. Han told 10 daily that on May 18 a tow truck driver dropped her off at the closest motel which had a vacancy online a little before 9. Despite reception closing at 9 pm, the owner of the motel let her in, but after a minute exchange that she describes as "rough and aggressive" he kicked her off the premises.
