Dr. Michael Pettid offers new perspectives on the women of the Chosǒn Dynasty (1392-1910) and their roles in Confucian society. Known as a traditionally male-dominated culture, the Chosǒn Kingdom limited the roles of women in politics, education, and leadership. Using several ancient texts, Dr. Pettid will provide insights into the dynamic and sometimes misunderstood position of women of the time.
