Synopsis

When the feminist movement arrived in Japan in the 1990s, no one could have imagined the transformational impact on every aspect of life there. Lesbians and bisexuals are coming out of the closet, ever-present minorities are visibly activist, single mothers are a growing population, and women are becoming political leaders. Here is the most comprehensive collection by Japanese scholars and activists on these enormous changes in contemporary Japan.

Born in Japan, Kumiko Fujimura-Fanselow spent her formative years in the United States during the civil rights movement. She is now a professor of education and women's studies at Toyo Eiwa University.
