Women in Politics and Public Service

The Maureen and Mike Mansfield Foundation (MMMF) in cooperation with the National Association of Japan-America Societies (NAJAS) organized this two-phase program during which two delegations—American and Japanese—of influential women visited each others’ country and examined the policymaking processes. During the first phase of the program in December 2004, the U.S. delegation spent a week in Japan meeting their Japanese counterparts in public service; visiting public and non-governmental organizations whose mission is to focus on social policy; and sharing their experiences. Our collaborators in Japan were the Women's Association for a Better Aging Society, The Dawn Center and the Fusae Ichikawa Memorial Association. In July 2005, the Japanese delegation spent a week in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Washington, D.C. visiting their American counterparts.
