Have a read of this article found on the independent wesbite– it documents quite well the inequality of Japanese women in the workplace. I return to Japan in a couple of weeks after being away for 2 years. One of my Japanese nicknames was ‘fire woman’…
I always found it difficult to accept the treatment of Japanese women when I was an expat. Whenever me and my Japanese mates would come back from clubbing it would always be the ladies in the kitchen cooking up ramen.
Guess who got served first and received the biggest portions?
