Women and Youth Leading the Grassroots Movements in Post-3.11 Japan

Post-3.11, many activist movements emerged from numerous corners of Japan. Some describe this as the beginning of a new type of civil movement and democracy, as many of the activists are youths and women, widely utilizing the internet to promote their cause. However, large media outlets have not captured their efforts for the world to see; therefore, this talk will address the women involved in these “untold reform movements” among Japanese society.
