Women’s Eye WE

Women’s empowerment organization
in Japan, Tohoku
WE has eyes on
Life-related issues and socially vulnerable people.

Who WE is?

Women’s Eye(WE) is a non-profit organization that supports women in Tohoku coastal area hit by the Great East Japan Earthquake, Tsunami. We started our activities in May 2011.

Why WE works?

Japan needs women’s empowerment. Japan has strong patriarchy-based culture and society. Japan ranked 114th out of 144 countries in 2017 by the gender gap index by the World Economic Forum (WEF). Especially, women in rural areas suffer from stereotypes and gender-biased behaviour of both the family and the community. They lose educational, vocational, political or business opportunities.

Activities

We focus on capacity-building of women who are active or may become active at grassroots level in the community, by theme-based community development strategy.
