Women's Research Institute to screen “Japanese Woman” Sept. 29

The Women's Research Institute at Brigham Young University will show “Japanese Woman,” a film dealing with traditional and modern Japanese women Thursday, Sept. 29, at noon, in B132 Joseph Fielding Smith Building (JFSB).

Admission is free and the public is welcome to attend.

The film explores the unchanged lifestyle of women in Japan for centuries, followed by World War II and General McArthur’s “Grand Design,” a plan for democracy that revolutionized the status of Japanese women.

Interviews with modern Japanese women, WW II and postwar footage, as well as depictions of the typical Japanese woman’s lifestyle show that the West may have introduced “women’s liberation” to Japan, but the women of that country are still searching for ways to overcome old prejudices and to develop their own unique approach to the issue.

The Women’s Studies Film Series presents films addressing women’s issues every other Thursday at noon in B132 JFSB, alternated with the Women’s Studies Colloquium, a scholarly forum on women’s issues and research.

For more information about the Women’s Research Institute’s Film Series or Colloquium, please contact Joanali Evans at (801) 422-4605.
