Abstract

The new progressive women’s movement in South Korea, which began after 1987, hasattained huge success in a relatively short period of time. One key to this success istransnational solidarity between South Korean and German feminists. The transfer ofGerman feminism to South Korea was facilitated through two channels: a theoreticalintroduction via print media, and the support of German development assistance. Thecriticism of Anglo-American feminism and the acceptance of feminism in Germansocialism, although sometimes unpolished, paved the way for the rise of a new women’smovement. In addition, financial support given by the German Evangelical Center forDevelopment Assistance, which focused on gender parity, contributed to the successfuldevelopment of the new women’s movement. This study explores transnational solidaritybetween South Korean and German feminists, which offer a noticeable model forcollaboration between feminist movements in First and Third World countries.
