The feminist movement in Japan has impacted every aspect of contemporary life there. Now more than ever, the myth of a homogenous population living within traditional gender roles is being challenged. LGBT people are coming out of the closet; ethnic minorities are mobilizing for change; single mothers are an expanding population; women are becoming political leaders and professional wrestlers as men are becoming househusbands. Transforming Japan is a comprehensive collection of writing by Japanese scholars and activists exploring the ways in which present-day Japan confronts issues of gender, sexuality, race, discrimination, power, and human rights.
