ABSTRACT

From a feminist perspective, this study investigated the relationship between Korean women's perception of patriarchal conflicts and their seeking for psychological meanings in their leisure experience. Based on previous research, two dimensions of patriarchal conflicts(i.e., situational conflict and cultural conflict) and four different meanings of leisure experience(i.e., escaping, deviation from norm, resistance, & harmonizing) were measured and interrelated. Date were collected nation wide from 1059 Korean women. Results showed that the situational conflict made different effects on the four different types of leisure experience, while the cultural conflict made a significant impact on the all four dependent variables. The moderating effects of demographic variables on the relationship were also explored. Results from this study suggest that the situational conflict might lead to some aggressive leisure experience among Korean women.
