Envisioning Korea’s future: renewing the golden thread
Pages 16

This saga of the journey and evolution of Korean women as citizens, actors, leaders, and managers began, and concludes with, the ancient Korean creation myth in which the tiger says:

I represent the strength and cunning the Korea people have used to defend their homeland for more than three thousand years. My teachings give this legacy to each new generation of people. I am the comforter who brings peace to the spirits of Korea’s ancestors and safeguards and protects the Golden Thread, that which ties and binds the Korean people together throughout time, a thread that must never be broken.1
