In the 60s, she was involved in students movements and land rights movement. After Fukushima, in September 2011, she organized 100 women from Fukushima to sit-in in front of the Ministry of Economy, Technology, and Industry in Tokyo, which grew to be a hub of women’s sit-in movement against nukes and many social issues, later known as Occupy Tokyo.
