Abstract

The broad objective of this thesis is to evaluate the impact of economic development on white-collar women by exploring gender relations at work in modem Korean chaebol offices, and also to assess the extent to which the cultural legacy of traditional (particularly Confucian) ideology has influenced contemporary corporate culture and women’s status and roles in it. For this purpose two hypotheses are tested: first, that national development, having generated women’s increased participation in paid work, has failed to integrate them fully into the process; second, that the national culture, with its strong Confucian tradition, has been a major obstacle to full integration by ‘legitimising’ and sustaining gender inequality.
