ABSTRACT

Korean disabled women's movement, which began with starting disabled women's self-organisation, 'Bijjangeul-yonun-saramdeol', in 1990, has grown rapidly, criticising disablism and men-centrism in Korean society. This movement has been acknowledged as the only civil rights movement which can possibly tackle the oppressive forces in Korean society and consequently has constructed maturity internally and externally. The movement is now in a new phase of creating counter social values and seeking ways to achieve its ultimate goal of disabled women's emancipation. The discourses In this moment forming by disabled women activists on their political activism would greatly affect the future politics of the movement. This study aims to consider the movement's decadal achievement as well as its limitation from the critical viewpoint through the discourses emerging from inside the movement.
