The Creation of Mass Media: Choe Yun-ui’s Printing Press

The Printing Press

by Sophia Newman (2019, Lithub) “[Assume Direct Quotes]”

Choe Yun-ui (1234 AD) (Still quoting Newman, 2019)

Perhaps it should be Choe Yun-ui whose name we remember, not Johannes Gutenberg’s for inventing the printing press. Choe Yun-ui did that 150 years before Gutenberg was even born.

It is only very recently, mostly in the last decade, that their viewpoint and the Asian people who created printing technologies have begun to be acknowledged at all. ”

The Printing Press & Gender

Alissa McAlpine, 2015 (direct quote)

printing created jobs that women could take outside the home that were socially acceptable.

George Elliot and George Sand

Writing, printing, stitching, binding, and distributing were all acceptable fields in which women could participate.
