Conceiving Women’s Issues

Conceiving Women’s Issues

Tongnip sinmun (1896–1899)

Chapter Two Conceiving Women’s Issues
Women Pre-Scripted

Ji-Eun Lee

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter focuses on the newspaper Tongnip sinmun (The Independent) and its positioning as a didactic and pedagogical institution vis-à-vis women’s issues. Using as a case study its reports on a women’s grassroots movement to establish a girl’s school, the chapter shows Tongnip sinmun’s position toward issues of family and gender, and explores in detail how these issues were constructed in the articles. I look at how discourses on women played the dual role of promoting women’s education, while also embedding women in domestic space. I use the Ch’anyanghoe incident – an advocacy attempt for establishing a girls school that failed to solicit government support – to expose limits of “progressiveness” at the time.

Keywords:   Tongnip sinmun, Ch’anyanghoe, education for women, The Great Han Empire, Tears of Blood
