Jeju Women’s Lives in the Context of the Jeju April 3rd Uprising
This paper analyzes Jeju women’s lives in the context of the Jeju April 3rd Uprising. The social and political contexts of the Jeju Uprising were reviewed. Based on the data collected from interviews with 150 female Jeju witnesses of the 1948 events, this study organized the impacts of the Jeju Uprising on Jeju women into three categories: providing aid to the insurgents and refugees, experiences with violence, and commitment to community development. This paper then discusses the creation of a culture of peace on Jeju Island as well as throughout the Korean Peninsula as a means of protecting the human rights of all Korean citizens, both female and male.
