Japanese Feminism and Anime
08/31/2019 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
South Mountain (Cosplay/BJD)

I'm sure we all noticed how unusual it was to see Madoka’s mom as the salary worker in her household, but I doubt many of us realized how radical that choice was the first time we watched Madoka. Japan has a unique feminist movement, with issues that are similar to those we have in the West, but manifest in different ways. We will discuss briefly the history of Japanese feminism, and paint a picture of the movement, while discussing some of the most prevalent issues and how they relate and present themselves to modern popular anime.
