The period considered in this chapter (1905-1910) is the semi-colonial era, a time when Koreans searched for quick routes to modernization and to regaining the nation’s independence. As part of that search, Enlightenment thinkers pondered and discussed the categories of “women’s knowledge” and “home” through articles in several magazines published during this period. T’aegŭk hakpo includes Yun Chŏng-wŏn’s writings, and thus has the distinction of carrying the first public woman’s voice. Two short-lived magazines, Kajŏng chapchi (1906-8) and Yŏjajinam (1908) were designed to serve as self-study textbooks and provide glimpses of the kind of information selected as appropriate for women, and the mode of delivery for this information. Illustrations, script choice, and ideological implications inferred from the articles show a hybrid of Korean tradition and Western knowledge, but also demonstrate an underlying conservatism.

Keywords:   T’aegŭk hakpo, Kajŏng chapchi, Yŏjajinam, Yun Chŏng-wŏn, textbooks for women, Japanese Protectorate regime
