"A superb collection of essays on women and politics in contemporary Japan. This volume depicts how the blurring of the 'public' and the 'private' has constrained individuals' lives, and how women exercised 'agency' and 'voice' in various ways despite such constraints. It enhances our understanding of the persistent male dominance, as it also sheds light on the complexity of dynamic changes. This is a must-read for anyone who is puzzled why Japan continues to lag behind on gender equality."
-- Mari Miura, Sophia University

"Gill Steel in this edited volume Beyond the Gender Gap in Japan skillfully brings together leading scholarship from around the world, including many Japanese voices. Studies of Japanese politics that address gender or incorporate a gendered understanding remain too few to illuminate the subject. This book fills a critical gap in the literature, and does so with verve and insight. The authors tackle tough subjects from political representation to choices in personal life such as marriage and parenting, as well as exploring the intersection of these in how public policy tries to influence private behavior. This volume is required reading for those seeking to know more about gender and politics in Japan."
-- Robert J. Pekkanen, University of Washington
