Abstract: »The condition of Korean Women Under the Japanese Colonial Period Korea, always get the attention of the bigger countries because of its strategically location, making it a target country for invasions. Right after signing truces with many states and just coming out from the yoke of China, they could not escape from Japan’s radar and were conquered once again. In this study, we examined the period between the years of 1910-1945, when Korea was under the Japanese colonization, and the condition the women at that time in the light of Theresa Park’s very first book called; ‘A Gift From the Emperor’. The topics of this paper include how Korean women and girls were held in brothels to keep Japanese soldiers entertained under the name ‘Relaxation Union’ and how they tried to ensure the assimilation. Women's subdued role in the war and more examples of them being objectified can be seen in wars held in many other countries. This situation is being referred out of Korea, that period of time is mentioned and how the Koreans still feel the same about those events are being described.« (Source: Article)
