FEW Kansai February 2020 Meeting

How and Why Japanese Women Participate in Politics:  A Glimpse Beyond the Gender Gap

with

Dr. Susan Pavloska and Dr. Kimiko Osawa

We are fortunate this month to have as speakers two professionals conversant in a topic that we hear much about these days and that affects us all as women living in Japan: gender and politics. Dr. Pavloska and Dr. Osawa, associate professors at universities in Japan, have both contributed chapters to the edited volume Beyond the Gender Gap in Japan, published in 2019. They will question stereotypes and offer new perspectives on women’s roles in Japan, challenging us to broaden our view of the gender situation here. In her approach to the topic, Dr. Pavloska will examine the life and career of Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike. Dr. Osawa will focus on Japanese women’s political activism outside the home as they maintain their traditional role in the home. Please come to enjoy a stimulating presentation and expand your knowledge of this familiar subject.

For further information, please see the poster.
