Abstract

In this paper I will critically analyse the text and images published in the English version of the magazine Women of Korea. This source reveals the construction of masculinity and femininity in North Korea by the government, and demonstrates that official claims of gender equality are undercut by the evidence of a gender-segregated workforce and clearly-differentiated roles of men and women in society and the home.
