Attempts to write on and for women, and to prescribe values and conduct for women, were often met with strategic and active writing by women writers themselves, which thus revealed limits to those attempts at constraint. The epilogue concludes the book with some of the examples from Korean woman writers who, using their own voices, offer their own interpretions and adaptions of “modern,” “Western,” and “New” as they relate to everyday life inside and outside the “home.” This chapter and the book as a whole, through revealing the complex topography of early Korean modernity, is a call to focus further research beyond the prescriptions that limited how, and sometimes whether, women’s own voices were heard.
