For the first time, young Japanese women were persuaded to leave their families and enter the factory. Managing Women focuses on Japans interwar textile industry, examining how factory managers, social reformers, and the state created visions of a specifically Japanese femininity.

Faison finds that female factory workers were constructed as women rather than as workers and that this womanly ideal was used to develop labor-management practices, inculcate moral and civic values, and develop a strategy for containing union activities and strikes. In an integrated analysis of gender ideology and ideologies of nationalism and ethnicity, Faison shows how this discourse on womens wage work both produced and reflected anxieties about womens social roles in modern Japan.
