Table of contents
Some middle-class housewives took part in social movements. The majority of people, however, enjoyed the fruits of economic prosperity, much as people in the US did during the s or in China in the s. From , following the end of the Cold War, the Japanese economy stagnated. Attempts to stimulate the economy via public works spending provided a degree of economic stability.
This resulted, however, in a national account deficit that became impossible to ignore. Cuts in public works spending weakened regional economies and the liberalization of labor regulations led to an increase in part-time and temporary employment. Since , when Koizumi resigned the prime ministership, poverty and inequality have come to be recognized as serious social problems. These movements were led by different layers than the three that made up the core of the social movements of the s and s as discussed above.
After Koizumi, successive LDP administrations have faced a dilemma.
If they cut public works spending, regional economies suffer. If they increase it, the budget deficit grows and they face criticism from urban residents. Liberalizing labor regulations leads to a reduction in average wages and household incomes and contributes further to the declining fertility rate and the aging of the population.
After Koizumi resigned in , successive LDP prime ministers traded places every year. The DPJ was expected to initiate significant reform, but there was no consensus, either within the party or in public opinion as to what direction reform should take. There was no consensus, however, as to whether reform should be carried out on neo-liberal or social-democratic premises.
The Fukushima nuclear accident occurred in this context. The large antinuclear movement that emerged in the wake of the accident included actors drawn from all the social strata discussed above. These included farmers and fisher folk confronting radioactive contamination, housewives alert to the radioactive contamination of foodstuffs and the special risk to infants and children, intellectuals critical of nuclear power in an earthquake-prone nation, and other social groups that engaged in anti-nuclear movements.
The group that organized the street demonstrations in Tokyo, however, centered on the new social groups that had first emerged in the s. The demonstration was called over the internet by a group of workers in their 20s and 30s who were involved in the precariat movement. Although these demonstrations started with only a handful of participants, they grew rapidly into the tens of thousands. In Japan, nuclear reactors are shut down for routine checks after every 13 months of continuous operation. Strong public opposition and the need for more stringent safety standards made it impossible to restart them.
This did not result in any major electricity shortages, in part due to a growing public consciousness of the need to save electricity. There was a huge backlash against this decision. By August, the weekly Friday protests had spread to 87 cities across Japan.
Who were the actors in the antinuclear movement after the Fukushima accident? I consider this question by looking at both the main actors, those who organized the demonstrations, and the ordinary participants. In the autumn of , I surveyed 55 of the main actors in the antinuclear movement after the Fukushima nuclear accident. Activists were individually selected for this survey based on information from leading MCAN activists.
Most of those I surveyed became active around this issue after the nuclear accident. I provided activists with a list of the topics and asked them to write a short essay on their life history and their experiences in the movement. I asked them to write freely about their social attributes, their home environment, their use of the internet and how they came to be involved in their current activism after the nuclear accident.
Respondents did not necessarily address all of the topics suggested.
The survey revealed the following characteristics of the 55 individuals. Some participants appear under more than one point see Table 1 for a summary. The sample included 28 men and 27 women. Six respondents were in their 20s, 17 in their 30s, 24 in their 40s, two in their 50s and six in their 60s. Let us compare the movement in Japan with that in other countries.
This illustrates the fact that the antinuclear movement in Japan was a post-industrial social movement, like movements that occurred around the world at that time. There were far fewer full-time housewives among the main actors than was the case in urban middle-class movements in Japan in the s.
This, too, is probably due to deindustrialization. In Japan, the number of people employed in manufacturing reached a peak in This coincided with the peak of the antinuclear movement after the Chernobyl nuclear accident, in which housewives were the main actors.

By contrast, research on the labour force undertaken by the Japanese government indicates that the number of manufacturing employees in was just two thirds of what it had been in Manufacturing had long provided stable employment to male workers and the strength of this industry in Japan made it possible for many women to be full-time housewives. Since the s, as male industrial employment declined and became more precarious with the increase in part-time and temporary work, the number of full-time housewives decreased.
The Japanese mass media has long focused on the role of housewives in antinuclear movements. While mothers have long been an important source of opposition to nuclear energy, they were not the main actors in the demonstrations in and As I discuss below, the Japanese mass media failed to respond to the changing nature of the antinuclear movement after Fukushima and has tended to stick to the old framework that was established in the s when housewives were the main actors in antinuclear power movements. This reflects a more general failure on the part of the Japanese mass media to adapt to structural change in society.
