Abstract: More than twenty-five years have passed since the Japanese government introduced legislation to address gender discrimination in the workplace. This has been followed by other legal measures to safeguard employment during childcare or eldercare leave, and most recently to promote the formation of a "gender-equal society." Yet, official policies and legal provisions have had only little impact on reshaping gender attitudes and role expectations, suggesting that top-down efforts to effect change occur very slowly. This paper is a preliminary examination of everyday practices in Japanese schooling, particularly at the junior high school level (grades 7-9), that provide insight into gender socialization in Japan. It suggests that the educational process is inscribed with a range of gendered practices from diverse sectors that contribute to the reproduction of gender-based inequality in Japanese society.
