Record #:
Associate professor of Asian Studies, Jan Bardsley, studied how Japanese women perceived the American woman during the 1940s and 1950s. Magazines used exaggerated images of the American woman to convince Japanese women that democracy would improve their lives. Images of stylishly dressed women encouraged Japanese readers to follow Western lifestyles.
