Red Love in Korea: Rethinking Communism, Feminism, Sexuality

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    In the 1920s and 1930s some of Korea's most famous Communists were young women. Glamorous and notorious, they frequented the social pages as well as arrest notices of the daily newspapers in Seoul. Within their own leftist organisations and intimate affiliations they pursued a new sexual autonomy, or Red Love (Pulkun Yonae), that merged political activism with female sexual sovereignty.
