Globalization is not only universal phenomena beyond the local, but also it is integrated into the local culture. Globalization shows the dynamics between the global and the local as the local particularity spreads into the global. Within this background, the purpose of this research is to search into the specific dynamics of global/local as the local respond to and react to the global as universal phenomena in the activities of women for health maintenance. This Research Focuses on the Following: 1. The motivations and the social structural context of Korean women"s activities for their health maintenance 2. Local(Korean) women"s approach to the global health maintenance activities 3. The particularities of Korean women"s health maintenance activities reacting to the uniformal life style by the global market 4. The characteristics of dynamics between the global and the local, and the theoretical implications to the feminist understanding for the globalization phenomena based on the above analysis The data collections for this study consist of literature review, participant observation and non-participant observation, in-depth interview(19 women), personal experience notes(1 woman), interview with American women in Korea(3 women), and interview with professionals in the relevant field. The Results of the Analysis 1. The motivations for the health maintenance of their activities: Women are devoted to their health maintenance activities in search for liberative space to take care of their own inner needs which have not been fulfilled from their families and from society; to overcome the depression and frustration; to get their wounded minds healed; to get out from the chronic fatigue due to the oppression of body. 2. The way the global and local intersect in the women"s health maintenance activities: ① The objectification and commercialization of women"s health through the dynamics between the patriarchy of the center of the world and that of the local: it proceeds through the affinity between global capital and global image and the local patriarchal social structure such as the "overpackaging of the being." ② Women"s health maintenance activities as the global phenomena performed within the specific cultural context in the local: it proceeds through the affinity between the global consciousness with the local cultural structure.
