Perspectives on Japan within Asia
Reihe: Gender-Diskussion
Bd. 6, 2007, 200 S., 29.90 EUR, 29.90 CHF, br., ISBN 978-3-8258-9761-1

This volume applies a gender-sensitive perspective on Japan, discussing issues such as national identity, the changing appeal of role models, legacies of a misogynous past, gendered education policies, female imaging in the media, or working women's networks. The transnational dimension of this perspective is highlighted by comparisons drawn between Japan and other countries of the region such as Philippines and South Korea. Authors attend to concepts of gender and gendered identities as well as to actors within gendered spaces of society.
