The Japan Foundation, New Delhi proudly presents special Japanese Fim screening – ‘Shodo Girls‘ as a side event of ‘Shine Weeks Projects‘.
The World Assembly for Women in Tokyo (WAW! Tokyo 2014) will be held in Tokyo from 12th – 14th September. The period from before and after the symposium, 8th – 19th September, has been positioned as the Shine Weeks and a series of women-related events will be held by groups not only in Japan also overseas. These events will include symposiums, seminars, movie screenings, performances and other aspects of Japanese culture. It is hoped these events will generate a movement for “A Society where Women Shine” across all of Japan.
