On Wednesday 14, the Danish-Japanese Society hosted a talk about “The FX Beauties” at Asia House. Architect Christine Bjerke presented her research on the anonymous female Forex trading collective in Japan, led by Yukiko Ikebe, called “The FX Beauties”. The FX Beauties are comprised of mainly housewives, and the collective is now a crucial part of the Japanese financial ecosystem. The focus of the presentation was not only the intersection between gender roles and financial systems, but also Japan as a prime example of a hybrid society, where traditional values meet hypermodern technology.
