Overview

Feminism in Modern Japan: Citizenship, Embodiment and Sexuality

Tracing the history of feminism in Japan from the end of the nineteenth century to the present, Vera Mackie offers a fascinating account of those who rebelled against convention in the dissemination of ideas which challenged accepted ways of thinking about women, men and society. This carefully documented analysis is for students of feminism and related areas where nothing comparable is currently available.
