   schema:description "Housewives of Japangives voice to the lives and thoughts of 'professional housewives', a salient category of Japanese women. Drawing on a unique ethnographic inquiry, Ofra Goldstein-Gidoni explores the complexities of the relationship between socially and culturally constructed roles bestowed on Japanese women by a variety of state agents, including the market and the media, and the 'real' lives of these women. Goldstein-Gidoni offers a novel approach to the use of the Internet and especially e-correspondence in the production of ethnographic knowledge. The central position she gives to the life and voice of Mariko, a coauthor, though not a cowriter, challenges ideas of hierarchies and authority in the production of such knowledge."@en ;
