“Why such an expression? Because these girls are like creatures kept in a box. They may have hands and feet and a voice-but all to no avail, because their freedom is restricted. Unable to move, their hands and feet are useless. Unable to speak, their voice has no purpose.”
In this week’s episode of The Literary Coven, Courtney and Lily discuss the feminist speech “Daughters in Boxes” by Kishida Toshiko. Kishida was considered one of the first Japanese feminists, she criticized the Japanese family and stressed the importance of women obtaining an education prior to marriage. Join these giggly hosts as they talk about Kishida’s life, important themes from the speech, and how daughters are still being put into boxes.
