Kawaii Women- Empowered, Or, Entrapped?
The paper explores the Japanese subculture of Kawaii which was aimed at empowering women. However, experiences highlight how Kawaii that was supposed to empower Japanese women ended up objectifying as sexual objects. We draw parallel from the Teenybopper culture, which seemed to suffer the same fate in different cultural context.
