LEE Hyun-jung, Lee An-sook
From housewives in their early thirties to fifty-something women preparing for their twilight years, a variety of women were asked, “What is the meaning of money to women?” This question serves as the basis for this far ranging ‘interview documentary” whose scope overflows into issues of domestic labor, joint ownership, the raising of children, and employment opportunity. Not a theory-based critique but rather the real voices of women with their countless different insights, experiences, and encounters, this documentary provides a fresh perspective on the role and position of women within society. One woman answers, “What is money to women? It means power.” By examining the meaning of money, Economic Women highlights the power dynamic operating in gender discrimination. (Nam In-young)
