ABSTRACT
AN ANALYSIS OF WOMEN’S ECONOMIC PARTICIPATION IN KOREA By Noh- Kyoung Kim
Women’s participation in economic activities and gender equality in the labor market have become matters of heated controversy in recent years in Korea. In the unlimitedly competitive society of the 21st century, it is recognized that the women’s economic participation through gender equalization and the strengthening of national competitiveness by women’s participation in economic activities are very closely related and an important part of the national agenda. This study documents women’s participation in economic activities in Korea. In Korea, women’s participation in economic activities is continually increasing together with the fast economic development since 1980s. Even though the sharp rise of women’s economic participation, there is still pretty obstacle to women’s economic activities; social recognition, distorted labor market for women and compatibility problem with family matters, etc. I explain this by analyzing the statistics and also do the empirical works. Women’s participation in economic activities by the age shows the reversed U shape finally in 2001, it peaks in age group of 20s and 30s then gradually decreases. Women, who were interrupted from economic activities by marriage and childbirth, now continue to do economic activities in labor market after marriage and childbirth. However, the education still has no positive effect on women’s economic participation.
