Abstract

This paper examines from the perspective of feminist jurisprudence how Korean women have pursued law reform for securing gender equality in employment. It stresses that legislation for these purposes in Korea has mainly been propelled by the cooperative activities of women workers, many activists of women’organizations, and feminist law scholars. It demonstrates their movements for amending or enacting laws such as the Constitution, Labor Standards Act, and Gender Equality Act in Employment as leading cases among those various activities, Also, it shows the current legislative tasks women are struggling for.
