This work explores the similarities and differences in gender related policy making and outcomes in Japan and the United States. The role of women's movements and other factors in determining policy is the focus of the book. Three policies are examined: equal employment, domestic violence, and reproductive rights, with additional attention to gender equality policy in Japan and "family friendly policy" in both nations. The analysis examines the significance of international feminism and new standards of gender equity - kansetsu gaiatsu - as a resource for Japanese feminists seeking policy reform, as well as new trends toward policy cooperation. The future role of the United States, long a leader in policy development for women, is critically analysed, and Gelb suggests that American feminists and policymakers can learn important lessons from the experience of Japanese women's movements and efforts at influencing public policy.
