Girl Culture is No Joke
Trends in Japan’s female oriented-culture are the bread and butter of journalistic snark. From power spot hunting to self-photography, many activities are regularly viewed as trivial, silly, and wasteful. One consequence is that lucrative domains such as the beauty industry and the divination industry are ignored or trivialized in both scholarship and media. Laura Miller takes feminized occupations, pastimes, and consumption out of these misogynistic frames to examine their actual cultural and economic significance.
