The Work of Living Labour: FX Beauties

The FX Beauties are an online trading collective of around five million Japanese women—mostly housewives who trade digital currencies in lieu of leaving household savings in the low-interest bank accounts commonly available in Japan. By reworking the relationship between domesticity, cultural gender politics, financial systems, and decentralized networks, the FX Beauties demonstrate both the fragility and fortitude of gender norms in a neoliberal economy, as well as the ways that digital spaces encroach on domestic ones.
