Format: Paperback
Reading A New Woman, one does wonder who Hopper is more interested in, Kato Shidzue or Margaret Sanger. While Helen Hopper does effectively portray Kato as a pioneer of safe, somewhat reliable "family planning" methods in Japan during a revolutionary era in that country's history, she does not prove that Kato's efforts were as radical (rather, controversial) as her American counterpart, Margaret Sanger. Indeed, Hopper contends that, in Japan, birth control was virtually a non-issue lost among the political struggle between the civilian government and the strengthening military right. So what's the big deal? Why am I reading this? -It is nonetheless an interesting social history on the changing role of Japanese women in the twentieth century. 3 stars.
