This is the Ugly Face of Oppression

A day in the life of an upper-middle-class young mother and her baby, in Tokyo.

Most young Japanese moms don’t wear kimono when out about town. But, I wish they did. (This woman spent five years as a Geisha apprentice, and is definitely a Level 5 Housewife when it comes to traditional clothing.)

If you want to see the Oppression part, it is at the end (15:00), where, in return for all this luxury and freedom, her husband Demands a dinner consisting of rice porridge and a beer, while sitting on the sofa. Toxic Patriarchy Alert! Hide your eyes while she Submits to this horror.
