Women at the Home Front
Greater Japan Women's National Defense Association (Dai Nippon Kokubo Fujinkai), is a group of women that was in charge of neighborhood surveillance during the war. It is often depicted as a guileful group in wartime dramas, but for women, joining the group meant social advancement. They worked hard with pride to contribute to the country. However, as the war intensifies, they were forced to repress themselves and compete each other.
