Japanese women have been participants in a long history of social activism. But their participation in politics and political parties, is a more recent phenomenon. NGOs and other grass roots organisations have provided training, information and assisted with fund-raising to equip women to take up leadership positions in politics, especially at local government levels. Most political parties, however, still continue to provide only limited leadership opportunities for women.
