This class will help you to

• explore and understand the gender issues in Japan from different perspectives.
|授業の概要||Japan’s ranking on the Global Gender Gap Report has been low. Japan now ranks 121 out of 153 countries in 2020 the Global Gender Gap index. In this course, we will examine how socio-cultural, economic and political changes shape gender gap in Japanese society. This course focuses on the status of women in Japanese society and explores contemporary gender-related social issues, such as marriage, family, work, reproductive health and the rights of women, and domestic violence. We will also examine impact of gender on women in sexual and ethnic minority groups.
The class will be mainly conducted in an interactive and participatory style. In this class, you will increase your discussion skills by exchanging your views with your classmates and me. Through discussion, you will learn to explore different perspectives and think critically of gender issues in Japanese society.
In this course, students learn by reading and reflecting on the readings, actively participating in class discussion, asking questions, grasping the reality of issues raised in class by doing research.
