Manga Girl Seeks Herbivore Boy

Studying Japanese Gender at Cambridge

Edited by: Brigitte Steger, Angelika Koch

Japan's gender roles are in turmoil. Traditional life courses for men and women are still presented as role models, but there is an increasing range of gender choices for those uncomfortable with convention. This collection of studies from the University of Cambridge provides fascinating insights into the diversity of gendered images, identities, and life-styles in contemporary Japan - from manga girls to herbivore boys, from absent fathers to transgender people.
