Re: Zainichi women and Kokubo Fujinkai

Dear Colleague,

I recently visited the newly completed "Utoro Peace Museum" here in Kyoto. I think they may be able to answer your question. Their website (with contact details) is as follows:

Zainichi women and Kokubo Fujinkai

Dear collegues,

I am wondering whether the membership in Kokubo Fujinkai was restricted to Japanese women. Would it be possible for Zainichi Koreans, for example, to join the organization as well? Do you maybe have a suggestion where I might search for this kind of info, or whom I should approach?

Many thanks in advance.
