Commentary

 

During my research for this project, I noticed several gaping holes in on-line resources for the Japanese women's liberation movement. First, there appear to be few to no references to Japanese feminists, or to the Japanese feminist struggle outside of purely academic venues, i.e. on Wikipedia, although there are copious pages of Western feminists and types of feminism, and a number of links to Indian and Jewish feminists, as well as feminism as it relates to a number of major world religions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam). On-line English resources for Japanese feminist and women's issue groups are also in short supply, Kodosurukai and Chupiren are virtually nonexistent except for in Western scholar's doctoral theses and papers for various international women's conferences. English translations of Japanese sites, even government sites, also leave much to be desired in terms of translation quality and availablity. The one category I was able to dredge up a considerable amount of resources for was abortion/oral contraceptives, as it has been the topic of popular debate in many countries for the past 30 odd years or so, although because many of the hits were news articles the information I retrived is somewhat lacking in reliable statistics and in depth analysis. This was one issues that caused me to lament our inability to make use of the Chalk resources outside of class to copyright legislation and the subscription requirements of on-line journals and other academic resources.

Prostitution in Japan and women's sexuality (chastity) also turned up fairly few resources that did more than gloss the issue, perhaps because the issue hasn't gained much visability outside of Japan, especially when compared to the flourishing sex tourism and human trafficking industries in South and mainland East Asia. The issue of finding useful resources for prostitution in Japan is further complicated because the widely differeniated definitions of what 'businesses' and actions are determined to fall under prositution law, plausibly ranging anywhere from compensated dating with a minor, boy or girl, (no sexual acts) all the way to the most strict, traditional compensated vaginal sex with a female prositute in a brothel.
