Welcome to the Office of Kanako Yamana

My goal is to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

I am a feminist.

I share bell hooks’ definition of feminism as “feminism is a movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression.”

By her definition, feminism is for everybody, not just women.

I am motivated to ensure equal opportunities and inclusion for all people, regardless of religion, ethnicity, race, gender, nationality, sexuality, or other characteristic.
