patriarchy & sexism are global as fawk. i have experienced sexism all over the world thus far, of course. however i am fascinated by the sexism & patriarchy in japan, because well, i live here now & the sexism is so ingrained & normalized from my personal perspective & experience (the sexism directed toward me as well as the sexism i witnessed is lightweight fullweight absurd). the accessibility of feminist thought / theory / literature / media / space is quite slim -- so if you have any japanese resources on feminism please share, specifically in japanese so i can share this with my students for womxn's month.
in the mean time, peep this. blood boiling.
