Persisting Inequalities and Mitigating Forces: An Exploration of Japanese Women and the Women's Movement in Japan
On study abroad in Nagoya, Japan, I was repeatedly bewildered by the circumstance of Japanese women. In many instances, the Japanese women that I encountered appeared stiflingly oppressed. Yet, just as often, these same women seemed exceptionally free. Furthermore, it appeared that little action was being taken by women in efforts to rectify the disparity. After witnessing, first hand, the paradox that women seemed to live, I resolved to explore the position, attitudes, and responses of Japanese women.
