Depiction of Mothers in Western and Japanese Media

Main image to the post Depiction of Mothers in Western and Japanese Media

The portrayal of mothers in Western media, particularly American sitcoms, has evolved over the years, reflecting changing societal norms and expectations. From the 1970s where perfection was epitomized by characters like Carol Brady on "The Brady Bunch" to a more realistic and imperfect representation seen in characters like Roseanne Conner on "Roseanne" in the 1990s, television has been a platform where the essence of motherhood is captured.

On the other hand, in the U.K., depictions of mothers in soap operas like "EastEnders" and "Coronation Street" are shown to be more complex, showcasing a different facet of motherhood compared to their American counterparts. These varied representations highlight the diversity of experiences and challenges faced by mothers in different cultural contexts.

In Japan, the concept of motherhood is explored through surveys and popular culture mediums like manga and their TV adaptations. Older figures like actor Sayuri Yoshinaga are often seen as embodiments of ideal Japanese mothers, reflecting a sense of nostalgia and admiration for the mothers who helped emotionally navigate the post-war era. Additionally, manga series like "Chibi Maruko-chan," "Kobo-chan," and the long-running "Sazae-san" play a significant role in shaping perceptions of motherhood, presenting full-time mothers in Japanese-style multigenerational households, offering a glimpse into unique family dynamics and values.
