In addition, I thought I could use Prof. Robinson's inquiry as an
opportunity to point listserv readers towards two websites that may be
of interest to other scholars of gender and early modern Korean history

The first is the website http://newwoman.culturecontent.com - a private
endeavor providing a rather entertaining and in-depth investigation
into the world of the "New Women." This sight also has some pictures of
Na Hyeseok and her husband.

multimedia materials, both historic and contemporary.
I hope readers will find these materials helpful.
