Early modern Japan was a military-bureaucratic state governed by patriarchal and patrilineal principles and laws. And yet, during this time women had considerable power to directly affect social structure, political practice, and economic production. This apparent contradiction between norms and realities lies at the heart of The Problem of Women in Early Modern Japan. Marcia Yonemoto examines prescriptive literature and instructional manuals for women as well as diaries, memoirs, and letters written by and about individual women from the late seventeenth to the early nineteenth century to address these and other questions about the dynamic nature of women's lives in the early modern era.
