This book presents the lives and times of eight Japanese women who epitomize the tragedies and triumphs of eight characteristically female roles. In examining the lives of Empress Jingu (mythological), Jito Tenno Murasaki Shikibu, Tomoe Gozen (twelfth century), Hojo Masako, Hani Motoko, Takamine Hideko, and Ariyoshi Sawako, the contributors provide a mosaic of Japanese history and culture that encompasses issues of women's status in various stages of Japanese history, the social climate conducive to positive female roles, the concept of Japanes womanhood in relation to the male hero types of each age, and the popular need for strong female figures. It is the examination of the legends that have accured to the historical presence of these women that sets this book apart.
