No Steps Behind tells the unlikely story of Beate Sirota a young woman who grew up in Japan and returned as a translator working for the A. This is a powerful portrayal of the role one woman was able to play in reshaping the rights and laws of a country and culture Her global experiences with cultures uite different from her comfort zone shaped her eventual determination to make a difference first as a European Jewish child immigrant in Japan then later as a college student in USA then while serving in WWII as a translator and member of the military while the allied US forces led the reconstruction of Japan's legal system through a new Constitution Beate Sirota earned the respect of all sides first gaining the wording of euality for all in the proposed constitution then winning the day among the Japanese representatives who took into account the deep respect they had developed for her as she translated and supported the negotiations Her achievement lifted Japanese women from centuries old subservience to modern day eualityThis is an example of the kind of hidden history that I welcome as much as kids do
