of Kyoritsu Women’s Educational Institution

In 1886, 34 leading academics, pioneers of women’s education in Japan at that time, established Kyoritsu Women’s Occupational Institute. The application document submitted to the Government gave “women’s self-reliance” as the objective of the proposed Institute, declaring that “Suitable jobs need to be created and women given the means to participate in the world of work.”
