Her story of Korean Women Labor Monement in the 20th Century

Digital 6mm, Color, documentary, 12' 30'', 2000 (English caption available)
produced by KWWAU
directed by Halmiggot(pasqueflower), women film group


 For the past century, we kept our three hopes (Liberty, Equality and Peace) deep in our hearts. The 20th century was the sighing days of suppression and exploitation as we were mothers, daughters, and workers. But we outlive the hard days thanks to our sisters' sacrifice and struggles.  Thanks to their bravery against ignorance and discrimination and faith on our hopes.
Now we are living in the 21st century and we are closer to the realization of women's  human rights and gender equality. Thus we need to collect and bear in minds the struggles of our sisters from the colonial period to late 1990s.

- short report on irregular women workers

Digital 6mm, Color, documentary, 38', 2001(English caption/dubbing both available)
produced by KWWAU and KWTU
directed by Mi-rye Kim


Synopsis
A video piece presents the reality of women whose careers are based on irregular labor work. Deprived of the privilege to create a labor union and having to live with the uncertainty of being laid off, irregular labor workers are excluded from various labor rights. Such unreasonable environment only deepens women's economic exploitation and dependency on men while aggravating another gender hierarchy within the labor force.
 
Program Note
From a TV scriptwriter, an academy instructor and a golf caddy to a dispatched worker, this video film presents the reality of women whose careers are based on irregular labor work. Deprived of the privilege to create a labor union and having to live with the uncertainty of being laid off, irregular labor workers are excluded from various labor rights, including medical insurance benefits. Such an unreasonable and unstable environment only deepens women’s economic exploitation and dependency on men while aggravating another kind of gender hierarchy within the labor force. Subsequently women are being driven into the far peripheries of capitalism. A film that exposes the oppressive reality of women in various fields of irregular labor work.
