Abstract

This study examines women's labor force participation in rural Korea in 1980 in relation to other factors of the agricultural system such as land and capital. Korean women played an important role in the process of economic development by providing labor resources. Women constituted 34.9 percent of the total labor force in 1970 and 36.6 percent of the total labor force in 1980. The labor force participation rate among women 14 to 64 years of age increased dramatically from 28 percent in 1960 to 39.7 percent in 1970 when the government's second economic plan was in full force. Between 1970 and 1980 women's labor force participation rate remained almost the same, the participation rate of 1980 being 40.3 percent. (The rest omitted)
