Publications and others
Founding President of the Alliance of Feminist Representatives in Japan (established in 1992) and also served as a Representative in the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly. During my two term tenure at the Assembly, I was an instrumental figure in the passage of bills benefiting women, including the establishment of the first sexual harassment complaint hotline publicly funded in Japan. In 2000, I was hired as the founding director of a city-sponsored Gender Equality Center in Toyonaka, Osaka, and was dismissed from the position as a result of intense backlash from a far right-wing political group and far right-wing politicians. To appeal this injustice to society and to win an order for compensation, I filed a lawsuit against the city in the Osaka District court 2004. 40 women lawyers have formed a strong team for the plaintiff.

My many published books include: Women Can Do It!: published by Norwegian Labour Party Women (2004, Kamogawa Publishing Ltd., translation ), Cross Men Out!: Women's Coup in Norway (1999, Mainichi Newspaper Publishing Ltd.), Mom, Minister and Papa at Home : Public Policies for Gender Equality in Europe (1995, Akashi Shoten), Sexual Harassment in Japan (1994, Shueisha), Pink Power in Politics: Women Change Politics in the World (1992, Sanseido). Cross Men Out!: Women's Coup in Norway is highly evaluated as a pioneering book for Norwegian politics.

My numerous published articles include: “Women 37.4% of Local Politicians in Norway” (JANJAN: Internet Newspaper, Sep.23, 2007), “A Wedding Party in a Norwegian Community 1,2,3” (Monthly Magazine: We, Oct., Nov., Dec. 2005), “Visitors from Norway: Women’s Center, Now” (Chugoku Newspaper, Jan.18,2004), “Ombud Works: Norway as a Country of Gender Equality” (Fukui Newspaper, Oct.11,2003), “What We Learn from Nordic Countries” (A VAXA, April 15,2003), “Women Should be 40% on the Board, Norway” (Nihon Keizai Newspaper, Sep.14, 2002), “Women’s Museum in Norway” (Many Local Newspapers though Associated Press, Japan, October,2001), “Country Where Women Can Decide their Life by Themselves” (Hygge, Autumn, 2001), “Quota System in Norway” (Kyoto Newspaper, May 12, 2000), “Norwegian Parliament: Gentle for Young Mothers” (Kyoto Newspaper, May 11, 2000), “Norwegian Municipal Council of Women Consist Over 60%” (Tokyo Newspaper, March 9, 2000).
