University-wide Educational Program: "Exploring Japanese society in the 21st century from a gender perspective"

The Office for Gender Equality offers gender studies courses.

What is gender? What is femininity and masculinity? In addition to discussing the importance of gender equality that creates a society in which people can shine regardless of gender, we examine education, job hunting, marriage hunting, the declining birthrate, raising children, and the stagnant Japanese economy from a gender perspective, in order to discuss policies that creates a better Japanese society in the 21st century.
