Reconstruction from the Viewpoint of Gender Equality -Referential Examples-
The basic concept underlying the “Basic Guidelines for Reconstruction in Response to the Great East Japan Earthquake” is to “promote the participation of women in every aspect/organization of the reconstruction” and “realize society of harmonious coexistence where everyone including children and people with disabilities can live comfortably”. Towards the realization of a gender-equal society where various lifestyles are respected, and everyone has an active role, there is a need for a gender equality viewpoint as regards reconstruction activities.
The Gender Equality Division, Reconstruction Agency of Japan, is collating referential examples where women are active or where the women of the disaster stricken areas are being supported in the fields such as town development, job creation and promoting healthy living, as a reference material for local governments and the people who are active in each region.
