For some 50 years after the Pacific War, the details of the drafting of Japan's constitution by the 'allied powers' General MacArthur had been kept quiet, much of it classified secret documents. To the world, appearances were kept as if the Japanese had drafted their own constitution, but in reality it was strictly managed by MacArthur. Gordon and another woman economist Eleanor Hadley had not been present, articulate, and assertive, there would possibly have been no 'equal rights clause' set forth in Japan's constitution.
Had Ms. Gordon not had experience growing up in Japan, fluency in the language and knowlege of the plight of women, equal rights in Japan might have taken many more years to arrive. Gordon was living testimony to the fact that today's Japanese women have rights of marriage, divorce, voting, owning property, etc. Certainly her biography would be a sweeping epic, from her parents' roots in Russia, her father's respected talent as a musician and teacher, through the chaos of the war in Europe, loss of family in Hitler's halocaust, her parents' surviving the war as "non-persons" in Japan, her US college education, her linguistic contributions to the war effort, and so on.
Despite all this, I believe perhaps Ms. Gordon does not view herself as being that different from thousands of others who lived through those years, but she did have extraordinary talent and the luck to be in the right place at the right time.

David Lynch's memoir-slash-biography is, yes, strange — and deeply American - Los Angeles Times
Somehow this version seems less detailed, but that could just be because it takes me a lot longer to read Japanese than English. In any case, I find it a bit ironic that 66 years ago an American woman wrote an equal rights clause in the Japanese constitution, while just the other day my female senator voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act. Why should it be I was surprised to read in the forward that this was the English version of her Japanese autobiography, which I had read a few years ago.
Why should it be that my rights as a female employee are better protected in my adoptive country than my native one? Nevertheless, I remain a Beate Sirota Gordon fan, and appreciate the fact that while she was the only woman in the room, at least she was in the room, and that made a huge difference for all women in Japan thereafter.

It seemed like she had a pretty fascinating life, and that was borne out in the book. It's short and not elegantly written, but that just adds to my fascination. There's so much you can imagine happening between the lines, so many thoughts and emotions that must have been left out.

The author was involved in writing the Japanese Constitution after WWII, and drafted the parts regarding women's civil rights and academic freedom. She also seems to have done a great deal to bring traditional Asian arts to the US after the war.
I just loved everything about her, and I'm glad she wrote this book. Shelves: , history , memoir , library , non-fiction , dead-tree.

I found it very well-written and easy to read. It was fascinating to read Gordon's thoughts of writing the section on women's rights in Japan's constitution and the process 'behind the scenes' of SCAP, the occupying force.

That was the section I was most interested in but after the occupation of Japan, Gordon went on tell of how she became a cultural ambassador, bringing over Asian arts and performers to the United States. It was quite an interesting read and I recommend it to anyone interested in modern Japan.

Adults in the Room by Yanis Varoufakis review – one of the greatest political memoirs ever?
A self-indulgent story about how she was the best person at everything and everything she did was really important and noone was as good at or understood as much as her. Had to read this for a Japanese History class even though only a tiny part of the book was really relevant to Japanese History and hated every minute I spent reading this ego trip.

She ended up helping write the new Japanese Constitution particularly the sections on women's rights and academic freedom and participated as a translator in the negotiations between Japanese and Occupation officials as they hammered out the final version.
The constitution made massive changes in Japanese society. She then went on to have a career in bringing Asian artists and performers to the US for many years. The writing isn't the most elegant. The book felt like a good amateur writer putting down her life story for her grandchildren and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This memoir is the fascinating life story of a woman who was born in Vienna, the daughter of Russian Jews, who lived in Japan between the ages of to escape Hitler in the 's, and then went to the USA to escape the Japanese during WWII.
The best part of the story is how she was chosen as a 22 year old yes, only age 22 to go to Japan as a US government worker in the years right after the war to help write the new Japanese constitution. Since she spoke Japanese and was familiar with Japan This memoir is the fascinating life story of a woman who was born in Vienna, the daughter of Russian Jews, who lived in Japan between the ages of to escape Hitler in the 's, and then went to the USA to escape the Japanese during WWII.
Since she spoke Japanese and was familiar with Japanese life and customs, particularly Japanese women, she was chosen to clarify and specify women's rights in the new constitution. The only problem I have with this book is that there was not enough detail on that part of her story. An entire book could be written on that alone. It would probably take a biographer to do research on all the aspects of it. I could see a film being done on this part of her life. Amazing episode in history. Oct 24, David rated it it was amazing.
What an amazing life Beate Sirota Gordon lived. This book caught my attention because it dealt with her part in helping write a new constitution for post-war Japan. It also gives a good account of conditions in Japan before, during, and just after the war. Over half the book deals with Beate's life in various countries with a large amount of her growing years spent in Japan. This helps understand where her passion came from in fighting to include articles in the new constitution about protection What an amazing life Beate Sirota Gordon lived.
This helps understand where her passion came from in fighting to include articles in the new constitution about protections for women and children. Her deep understanding of Japanese culture was key to why she knew these would be essential for the future of Japan. Fascinating family history and a great read for anyone and especially those interested in WWII history. Jun 08, Leigh rated it really liked it Shelves: feminist. Beata Sirota Gordon had truly interesting and important life that makes reading this short book worthwhile.
Some of the twists and turns in her life, such as growing up in Japan, were not of her own making. But what Ms. Sirota Gordon did with her knowledge of the country and language and culture are extraordinary! She had a major impact on the place of women's rights in the new Japanese constitution after World War II. And she brought many of the performing arts of Japan and other parts of Asia Beata Sirota Gordon had truly interesting and important life that makes reading this short book worthwhile.
And she brought many of the performing arts of Japan and other parts of Asia to the attention of the Western world thru her work with the Asia Society in New York and thru her role as a producer of many performances. So glad to have "made Beata's acquaintance"! Dec 04, Anna rated it really liked it Shelves: memoirs , textbooks. This one is terribly interesting. When they didn't do it to our liking, we did it for them. Beate Sirota Gordon was one of the women employed by the army in post-war Japan, specializing in languages.
She had also lived for many years in Japan with her parents. When the decision to write their own constitution was made, they pulled her aside and basically said, "You lived in Japan. You're a woman. You'll write the section on women's ri This one is terribly interesting. You'll write the section on women's rights".
And she did. Jan 25, Christy rated it liked it. This was an interesting turn of the century book. Things are different in the world not only because of the war, but women are starting to work more and have some say in the goings-on. This story about a girl living in Japan before and after the war College she spent in the US then her life with her husband and her lack of involvement with her kids due to her constant attention to her work preserving heritages and 3rd world customs.
Wonderfully fascinating memoir of an amazing life. Gordon tells facts and anecdotes of her childhood in Japan with famous Russian Jewish pianist father and gregarious mother, survival in the U. So fun and historic we are bringing her to town to hear her speak. Dec 17, Adrienne rated it it was ok. My rating is based solely on the fact that the writing was dull and it felt like she still had a very American perspective on Japan and other countries.
