Along with several other parts of the world, Korea has experienced a shift from agrarian patriarchy to patriarchal capitalism. The chapter looks at areas where issues of ‘gender’are concerned, especially in situations of oppression within peripheral industrialization. The chapter attempts to provide a framework for examining the role of women in this transition. Gender is often associated with power relations and structures in agrarian patriarchy since women have limited access to participation in political organization and gaining gender consciousness. In contrast, gender presents threats of oppression in patriarchal capitalism because of divisions of labour that are determined by gender within households. This chapter studies how such situations result in the same dynamic that brings about gender emancipation through promoting bases for gender-based politics.

Keywords:   Korea, agrarian patriarchy, patriarchal capitalism, oppression, peripheral industrialization, role of women, gender-based politics, gender consciousness
