The Korean American Catholic church has been permanently impacted by Confucian ideals. These values have perpetuated a filial patriarchal image of God resulting in the marginalization and subordination of women. It has distorted the image of God and has damaged the self-image carried by first and second generation Korean American Catholic women. Liberative feminist theology that recognizes the full humanity of women is the means by which second generation Korean American Catholic women can begin to reconstruct a fragmented self-image and image of God.
