about

"In the beginning, woman was the sun" where the first words within the published literary magazine "Seitō." Founded by Raicho Hiratsuka, a writer, journalist, political activist, anarchist and pioneering Japanese feminist.

These first words where a reference to the Shinto goddess Amaterasu, and to the spiritual independence which women had lost. Adopting the pen name “Raichō” (“Thunderbird”), she began to call for a women’s spiritual revolution, and within its first few years the journal’s focus shifted from literature to women’s issues, including candid discussion of female sexuality, chastity and abortion."
