Course Description: During the postwar era, social and economic changes led to drastically changed contexts for Japanese women. These changes could be characterized as a second wave of Japanese in which GHQ policy certainly played a role encouraging positive changes enjoyed by Japanese women. Prewar images like “good wife, wise mothers” and “modern girls” gave way to other images, including “education mothers” and the office lady. Today both elderly and young women play important social and economic roles, despite occasional trivialization of their functions. The course examines images and issues related to women as well as relationships between men and women in Japan through academic works and newspaper articles. The course also discusses popular media for images of women.
