in 2007, the e-land group of korea planned a massive lay-off of non-permanent cashiers in its supermarket chain stores and outsourced the jobs, which caused a group of middle aged women workers, who were thought to be just earning for cosmetics, to stand up and fight for their bread and butter. they got themselves organised to strike; they stayed inside the supermarket and acted out an extended occupation. after this rare chance of release from the household works, they encountered violent removal by the police.
in the long one and half year of struggle, the harsh challenges of pressure from their families and financial burdens were after them one after another. not only did the women workers have to face discriminative treatment at work, they also had to deal with the pressure imposed on them from patriarchal society. how did they manage to break the shackle of the family, to fight for their dignity as workers and become united in solidarity? also, how did they reflect on their multiple identities and fight on with resolution?
