As time goes by, we see how this concept has brought forth different images of women and has caused oppression amongst women who feel they need to live up to this concept.
A perfect example of is the Japanese drama series is the title itself.
We have Noriko who is the most successful and the least to be applied to the concept of "ryosai kenbo".
Anne Imamura in her introduction states that “Roles refers to behavioral expectations, whereas image refers to appearance.
Noriko is also the only one out of the three wives that does not have an affair, but her husband Kitano is the lover of Sawa.
The second wife is Rikako, whom at first one would think fits the concept but no.
Please share with us via a comment, will you be wearing a flower behind your right ear, or wearing a flower behind your left ear?
The concept of "ryosai kenbo" or "good wife", is a very popular concept that is seen in films, as seen in films, especially Japanese films.
I think she is the most fake because she is exactly what Anne Imamura would fit into what she meant when she said "image refers to appearances". She puts up this persona that makes it look like she fits the role when really she is not.
Noriko who I see as more of the modern woman, is an independent woman.
