How Feminism and Diversity are Making a Difference
Human rights for minorities, LGBTQ visibility, changing models of marriage and family, a fledgling men's movement—the myth of a homogenous Japan is dispelled. Japanese scholars and activists contribute to a defining book on the transformation of their culture.
“This is the first time a portrait of Japanese women has been written by Japanese women themselves from a feminist perspective: enjoy a volume which blends the latest research of writers and scholars in all fields, who provide both history and social commentary.” –Midwest Book Review, (on Japanese Women: New Feminist Perspectives on the Past, Present, and Future)
“Twenty-seven essays by Japanese women (and three men, one an American) discuss the changes in women's status in Japan since the Meiji Restoration (1868). …This comprehensive study is recommended for academic and larger public libraries.” —Library Journal (on Japanese Women: New Feminist Perspectives on the Past, Present, and Future)
