The Minato City Center for Gender Equity Promotion held a “Gender Concepts Symposium” on March 25, 2006. As stated on their website, this symposium was planned as a response to the so-called “Kokubunji city incident”, along with an attempt to counter the resistance towards research activities and actions for gender equity, and the growing intensity of the backlash movement. The event was hosted by the Gender Concepts Symposium Committee with support from Image and Gender and the Woman’s Studies Association of Japan.
