Women’s Movement in Japan Reading: The New Feminist Movement in Japan, 1970-1990 What is Feminism? There is not a distinctive definition for feminism. There are various groups that believe in different issues. Also, individualistic views play a large role in this. For most Japanese feminists, they believe that men and women are different, but those differences should be acknowledged equally. “Feminism represents views and teachings about women who take either a movement- oriented approach in which people form groups and caucuses on behalf of women, or an individual-oriented approach where a woman defines her own ideas about being a woman.” -Peterson, 1998:2 Social identity Pre-War Feminist Movement Pioneering female activists who tried to improve women’s status The Popular Rights Movement, Christian Women, and Socialists Movement Demanding autonomy of women and rejecting Japanese family system.
