Gender in Japanese Preschools: Frogs and Snails and Feminist Tales in Japan
How might teachers and parents work with Japanese children to ensure that they do not get caught in the traditional limitations of masculinity and femininity? And how might we, as observers of Japanese culture, move beyond old ways of seeing Japan as "Eastern", as different and as exotic? The children in this study are, in some ways, like children anywhere. At the same time they are very specifically Japanese, with very specifically Japanese ways of doing gender. Delightful, funny and outrageous, these children are predictable and also terribly surprising."--BOOK JACKET.
