the movie ‘Madame Freedom’, “We need to be economically independent to avoid the tyranny of our husbands” (38min in the movie)

Each essay should be 3-4 pages in length (double-spaced, 12-point font, with 1-inch

margins). Your essay must tie together your answers to the separate questions within each prompt into a coherent, organized essay based on a central argument and analysis supported by your discussion of the films AND readings.

Be sure to refer to specific characters, lines, and scenes from the selected films as well as pertinent secondary sources (outside research is permitted).

Time codes are not necessary, but please do quote from the subtitled dialogue. All sources must be cited in footnotes and you must also have a bibliography.

Select two films and discuss the main female characters in the context of South Korean postwar economic development.

How are societal roles different for married women and single women? And how do the female characters empower themselves?

Prefer 2~3 quote from film, 2~3 from reading and 1 from outside research)

I have all of the reading pdf. I can send pdf through email.

Movies are on the Youtube (I put address at the second page)

No copy and paste no Plagiarism

Need to within 90hr but always soon is the better.

In the movie ‘Madame Freedom’, “We need to be economically independent to avoid the tyranny of our husbands” (38min in the movie) I want this quotation in the essay if it is possible.
