"Women of Korea is a translated and revised edition of Han'guk yoson-sa which was published in 1972 by Ewha Womens University Press. The new work is the most comprehensive study to date of the status, role, and activities of Korean women through the country's long history. Creditably the major substance is drawn from valuable original sources. The book particularly emphasises the modern period which begins with the establishment of treaty relations with foreign powers in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. The complicated currents of political and social development have been succinctly interpreted for the reader without undue detail."
