Meiji at 150 Podcast, Episode 023, Dr. Marnie Anderson (Smith College) Anderson, Marnie; Grunow, Tristan


In this episode, Dr. Anderson canvasses the political agency of women’s groups during the Meiji period, changes in women’s place in public society, and women’s active participation in the construction of notions of femininity. We discuss the modern motivations of, and divisions within, actors in the 1880s Popular Rights Movement, and reflect on the ruptures and transformations of the Meiji period.
