We need something useful to make the peace of the world come true. Without having all the women in the world being happy, one can not achieve the world peace (Beate Sirota Gordon)

This is the documentary film of the post World War II history of Japanese women who fought to establish their human rights in Japan. Article 24 of the Japanese Constitution, which sets out the equality of women and men, has provided the strongest base in support of the long and winding road over which Japanese women have travelled. Beate Sirota Gordon, though only 22 years old when she drafted this article of historical importance, was the only one among the drafting team who was aware of the pain of Japanese women, of how limited were their rights and how inferior were those rights to those of men.
