How did families uphold or break with Confucian expectations about the separation of men’s and women’s spheres? 3. How did widows’ status change from Koryŏ to Chosŏn? What authority or rights did various widows (queen dowagers and other royal women, yangban, and commoner women) exercise at different times? Remember to reconcile various authors’ viewpoints, and give specific examples. 4. According to the Lee Bae-yong and Pettid readings, how did yangban and commoner women each contribute economically to the support of their households?
