The Social Position of Women in Japan in the End of 20th - the Beginning of the 21st Century
The theme of my master thesis is “The social position of women in Japan in the end of 20th - the beginning of the 21st century”.

The questions related to human rights, discrimination and equality, harassment of individuals or entire groups of people, the emergence of organizations and movements in defense of them, are becoming more and more important in our globalizing world.

These issues include: racial discrimination and religious disputes, ethnic conflicts, violation of human rights and freedoms, and, of course, the position of women in society. That is why studies on the subject of the oppression of women, the birth and spread of feminism, the struggle for gender equality are extremely relevant in our time.

Structure of my work is standard: relevance, purpose and research tasks are stated in the introduction, followed by an overview of sources and literature, dealing with the position of women, both in Japan and around the world.

In the process of writing this work changes in the status of women in Japanese society in the XX-XXI centuries were considered. Emphasis was placed on the XX century and comparison of the situation of women before and after World War II as one of the most important periods in the history of the country as a whole, and in the formation of the specifics of the position of women in society in particular. Important aspects were considered, they are:

- Women's status in the family.

- Origin and activities of the feminist movement and organizations aimed at finding housing and employment.

- Employment of women in the area of labour in Japan.

- The development of primary, secondary and higher education for girls.

- Reforms and legislation issued in support of equality and the advancement of women`s position in Japanese society.
