Book Description

A study of women in South Korean politics. Through life histories elicited by interviews and supplemented by published materials, Soh studies 29 women who were elected or appointed to the South Korean legislature. She asks who these chosen women are, how they attained their positions, and what motivated them. In doing so, she attempts to illuminate the systematic limits to female life in Korean culture.
