Explorations on the Feminism of Korean Men on the bases of their Social Structural Variables and its Effect on Well-being

Abstract

The current study was conducted to explore (1) the liberal feminism of Korean men on the bases of their social structural variables and (2) the its impact on their well-being. The Liberal Feminist Attitude and Ideology Scale as well as two quality of life scales( Subjective Well-being Scale and Psychological Well-being Scale) were administered to a nationwide sample of 727 Korean men. Results showed that the degree of liberal feminist attitude and ideology differed according to their social structural variables such as individuals marriage status, occupation, income, and educational level. The levels of gender roles, and global goals were higher for those men who were better educated, younger, and professionals or students. On the contrary, the levels of discrimination and subordination as well as collective action were higher for those who were older and had higher income. A Series of regression analyses revealed that most of liberal feministic attitude and ideology factors affected the Korean men's perception on their quality of life. Specifically, gender role, global goals, specific political agendas, and discrimination and subordination positively affected both psychological well-being and subjective well-being. However, collective actions positively affected the psychological well-being, while sisterhood positively affected the subjective well-being. Theses results were discussed in comparison with the study on the feminism of korean women and its effects on well-being, and the implications and limitations of the present study as well as the future directions of this area were discussed.
