Class Struggle or Family Struggle?: The Lives of Women Factory Workers in South Korea Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This study considers South Korean economic development from the perspective of young female factory workers, who grapple with defining their roles in respect to marriage and motherhood. Kim explores the women's individual and collective struggles to improve their positions and examines their links with other political forces within the labor movement. She analyzes how female workers envision their place in society, how they cope with economic and social marginalization in their daily lives, and how they develop strategies for a better future.

Synopsis:

This ethnography examines the lives of young female factory workers in the Masan Free Export Zone of South Korea.
