Japanese Modernism explores the increasing socially liberated status of Japanese women in the 1920s and 1930s.

What was it like for women living in Japan during this time, and have women’s rights, social inclusion and economic independence improved since then? How is Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s current Womenomics Policy trying to change the lives of Japanese women today?

Includes an opportunity to view Japanese Modernism from 5.15–6.15pm.

Presented in partnership with Asia Society Australia.
