    Who is Chieko Shiina?
    Activist Chieko Shiina organized as a youth in farmer and student movements. She participated in the fight against the US-Japan Mutual Security Treaty, opposing the strengthening of military ties between the two countries. After the earthquake on March 11, 2011 and the subsequent ongoing nuclear disaster, she helped form Fukushima Women Against Nuclear Power, reached out to communities of affected women all over Japan to support local organizing against nuclear power, and coordinated with 100 women from Fukushima to set up a “Women’s 10 Months and 10 Days Sit-In”, which became a space for women from all over Japan to gather, communicate, and organize.
