Mun Ilp’yŏng

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter narrates the account of Mun Ilpʻyŏng, a historian, teacher, journalist, and one of the few male writers to address women's issues for a primarily male intellectual readership during the colonial era. In many ways, his views were typical of male intellectuals of his generation, but the large body of writings he left behind grants a unique opportunity to chart the evolution of his views concerning the changing societal perspective on gender relations, especially with the rise of the New Women's movement in the 1920s.

Keywords:   Mun Ilpʻyŏng, New Women's movement, colonial era, male intellectuals, gender relations
