Feminism in Modern Japan
Citizenship, Embodiment and Sexuality
Feminism
in
Modern Japan
is an original and pathbreaking book whichtraces the history of feminist thought and women's activism in Japanfrom the late nineteenth century to the present. The author offers afascinating account of those who struck out against convention in thedissemination of ideas which challenged accepted notions of thinkingabout women, men and society generally. Feminist activism took diverseforms as women questioned their roles as subjects of the Emperor, orexplored the limits of citizenship under the more liberal postwar consti-tution. The story is brought to life through translated extracts from thewritings of Japanese feminists. This cogent, carefully documented anal-ysis will be welcomed by students from a range of disciplines, includingthose working on gender studies and feminist history, where nothingcomparable is currently available.
