Tokyo Woman

Here's a chance to help activate gender equality internationally! In 2019, Japanese women made headlines so documentary maker Gwen Isaacs went to Japan to find out why. Gwen observed the ignition of female-empowerment (Feminizumu) within the Japanese women she encountered, began filming their stories, and the result was her short documentary Tokyo Woman.

"I met - and filmed - some incredible women, who privileged me with their personal stories, three of which are touched on in this short film," says Gwen. However, her doco is a part of a much bigger idea, The Tokyo Woman Project, which aims to help more of these personal stories to emerge - not just in Japan, but internationally.
