Abstract

The Other Women's Lib provides the first systematic analysis of Japanese literary feminist discourse of the 1960s - a full decade before the "women's lib" movement emerged in Japan. It highlights the work of three well-known female writers of avant-garde fiction from this generation: Kono Taeko, Takahashi Takako, and Kurahashi Yumiko. Focusing on four tropes persistently employed by these writers to protest oppressive gender stereotypes - the disciplinary masculine gaze, feminist misogyny, "odd bodies," and female homoeroticism - Julia Bullock brings to the fore their previously unrecognized theoretical contributions to second-wave radical feminist discourse. The Other Women's Lib affords a cogent and incisive analysis of these texts as feminist philosophy in fictional form. It will be accessible to undergraduate audiences and deeply stimulating to scholars and others interested in gender and culture in postwar Japan, Japanese women writers, or Japanese feminism.

Abstract

''Rethinking Japanese Feminisms'' offers a broad overview of the great diversity of feminist thought and practice in Japan from the early twentieth century to the present. Drawing on methodologies and approaches from anthropology, cultural studies, gender and sexuality studies, history, literature, media studies, and sociology, each chapter presents the results of research based on some combination of original archival research, careful textual analysis, ethnographic interviews, and participant observation. Building on more than four decades of scholarship on feminisms in Japanese and English, as well as decades more on women’s history, this book offers a diverse and multivocal approach to scholarship on Japanese feminisms unmatched by existing publications. It will be at home in the hands of students and scholars, as well as activists and others interested in gender, sexuality, and feminist theory and activism in Japan and in Asia more broadly.
