In this paper, I would like to criticize the view that tries to generalize Korean church women. I would like to do this from the point of view of Gayatry Spivak and Trinh T. Min-ha. Both theorists do not look at the female subject in common but try to imagine it in various and hybrid wys. Korean church women cannot be called Asian women or even European women because they resemble American Christianity in terms of Christianity, but belong to Asia in terms of race. Theology or sermons conducted in Korean churches are not for women’s equality and liberation. Rather, interpretations and contents that demand obedience from women are the main ones. Theology of Korea needs to be widened by gender sensitivity which addresses the issues related to ‘women and their lives.’ I believe Gayatri Spivak’ and Trinh T. Min-ha’s ideas can help expand the perspective of looking at church women. Church women are the majority of those who hold conservative views, but some young women and women have views that are different from traditional Christian positions if they are equipped with femininity. Therefore, in this article, I would like to briefly discuss how to listen to the voices of women in the church who have become more complex and diverse from the perspective of postcolonial women’s studies and through the voices of women in resistance.
