The contemporary Japanese woman is frequently viewed as dependent, deferential, and far less ambitious than her American counterpart. In this surprising new look at women in Japan, Sumiko Iwao shows that these women are not the submissive females typically portrayed; rather, they hold positions equal to and sometimes more powerful than those of men.
