Abstract

Throughout Korea’s Chosn Dynasty (1392-1910), women had few social, economic and political opportunities, and their access to formal education was limited. The social status of women changed in 1945, following the establishment of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (commonly known as North Korea). The principle of equality between men and women is stipulated in a number of laws, including the Constitution.
