The book concentrates on those Japanese women who were outspoken critics of their society and the roles women were assigned in it, but also assesses the contributions women made to Japan during a period of rapid modernization.The struggle of Japanese women to gain political rights, the creation of a womens reform movement, the involvement of women in the early socialistic movement, the protests of women textile workers who staged Japans first strikes, the evolution of the womens movement into a literary movement, and a new view of Kanno Suga, an anarchist who was hanged by the Japanese government in 1911, are presented against the background of determined state intervention in the lives of women.The book concludes with a brief summary of the changing role of women in Japan since Meiji, and compares their experience with that of European and American women.
