Resumen

El presente artículo discute el fenómeno de los ikumen – padres activos en la crianza y cuidado de sus hijos pequeños – en el Japón contemporáneo. Considerando el contexto discursivo, económico y demográfico en el cual surgió el fenómeno, se debaten los modelos hegemónicos de género, los cambios en la forma de asumirlos por parte de los jóvenes y las representaciones mediáticas alrededor de ellos, centrando la atención en los varones. Al hacerlo, se pretende visibilizar las presiones sociales a las que se enfrentan los hombres japoneses, principalmente aquellos que son o desean ser padres y aspiran a ser más que proveedores en la vida de sus hijos.  

Ikumen, the recent discourses about active fatherhood in Japan

Abstract

This article discusses the phenomenon of the ikumen – fathers who participate actively in childrearing – in contemporary Japan. Considering the discursive, economic and demographic contexts in which it appeared and focusing the attention on men, the paper debates the hegemonic gender role models, the changes in the way young generations play them and how media represents them. In this way, it is intended to make visible the social pressures put on Japanese men that are or want to be fathers and who aim to be more than providers in their children’s lives.

Keywords: Fatherhood, masculinity, Japan, hegemonic discourses, public policies.
