This article is a bit unusual for this blog–a perspective on women’s rights in post-war Japan with particular emphasis on what rights did, and did not, make it into Japan’s postwar constitution. Definitely part of the Japan jigsaw puzzle!
It’s in the September issue of the No. 1 Shimbun in honor of the record number of women elected to the board of the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan this year (one of whom is me). I hope you like the article! (Archived article originally published by No. 1 Shimbun.)
