LeBlanc Ù 0 REVIEW Japanese housewives are ultimately not without a political worldFull of new and stimulating material engagingly written and deft in its weaving of theoretical perspectives with field research this study will not only open up new dialogues between gender theory and broader social science concerns but also provide a superb introduction to politics in Japan as a who. The book was an early bird on the political disengagement and dissatisfaction of the citizen in modern democracies due to the factual gap between the lives of the politicians even at the local level and the lives of the citizen I am very eager to read an up to date monograph on the subject as the LeBlanc was witnessing the worrying phenomena of the two speeds and two worlds politics than 10 years ago Even preoccupying is the fact that this disconnect between the citizen and the politician wasn t experienced in the small cities but rather in the capitalan area which statistically has much higher level of political participation Also apparent is the deleterious effects of the modern anti choice feminist propaganda fitting nicely with the old misogynist maxims that a housewife is stupid apolitical knows only of small things and that housewive s work is three meals and a nap which drives a unifying approach towards what is right for women just as any statist patriarchal propaganda was doing 20 40 or years ago

REVIEW ↠ Bicycle Citizens The Political World of the Japanese Housewife AsiaLocal StudiesGlobal Themes Robin M. LeBlanc Ù 0 REVIEW While the typical Japanese male politician glides through his district in air conditioned taxis the typical female voter trundles along the side streets on a simple bicycle In this first ethnographic study of the politics of the average female citizen in Japan Robin LeBlanc argues that this taxi bicycle contrast reaches deeply into Japanese societyTo study the re. So often feminist scholars try to analyze women through the lenses of men Robin Leblanc lived with a Japanese family for a little while and as she was there she started to analyze the housewives surrounding her She was surprised at how politically motivated they were and how much they got done She talks of their daily gatherings to care for the children and the discussions that would arise Women also made an incredible difference in the school meetings and town hall forums that they participated in This surprises Leblanc who went to Japan expecting to see disenfranchised women with no power beyond supporting their husbandIn the end Leblanc developes a metaphor to describe the uniue perspective that the women in Japan and everywhere else have Men she says see the world from fast paced taxis on the main roads whereas women see it on bicycles that find every nook and cranny Plus they are slow enough to catch the details missed in the taxi I like the way that LeBlanc puts the bicycles and taxis women and men on an eual level Because the taxis are flashy some would say they are powerful and grander LeBlanc says that they miss the small moments of community power that build a nation and raise children They are both necessary but different If anything by the end of the book LeBlanc favors the women cyclists than the impresonal taxi driving men At my high school many kids thought that all Mormons did things a certain way however once they got to know me they realized that their stereotypes were untrue Once I got people to see through my lens they understood my perspective I guess that is why I relate to books like this one They make me feel that there is some hope for true understanding in our world of streamlined everyone act and think the same way living They also help me understand that although I might be small I still have power to change the world Sorry for the long review

REVIEW ↠ Bicycle Citizens The Political World of the Japanese Housewife AsiaLocal StudiesGlobal Themes Robin M. LeBlanc Ù 0 REVIEW Lationship between gender and liberal democratic citizenship LeBlanc conducted extensive ethnographic fieldwork in suburban Tokyo among housewives volunteer groups consumer cooperative movements and the members of a committee to reelect a female Diet member who used her own housewife status as the key to victory LeBlanc argues that contrary to popular perception. I am not competent to judge this as a work of political science but as a reader who is interested in Japan and women s lives and most especially the domestic aspect of women s lives I found this absolutely fascinating It is dry at times LeBlanc is writing for academic colleagues and using the appropriate language of her field I was willing to tolerate the dryness and moments of jargon however because of my delight in her argument that the frame of political science itself is lacking by failing to take into account women s experiences as women She writes about the volunteer work of housewives in their community of why it is that these women s political actions are seen by both themselves and others as unpolitical and of why it is that these women have so little interest in joining the easily understood political spheres of campaigns and support of candidates Through it all she argues that the standard ungendered political actor is really just a male actor and that the very things which people denigrate about housewives their focus on caring for others especially children and the elderly as an inescapable obligation are exactly what Japan needs of in its politics I cannot speak for Japan but much of what she documents is very relevant to my own life as an apolitical volunteering focused housewife in the United States and I am considering how to integrate some of what she suggests into my own life
