A Seemingly Developed Nation: Women’s Rights in Japan


Morgan Waters

Abstract: Women’s rights in Japan have been fairly stagnant for decades even though the nation has continued to progress technologically and economically. In order for the country to be as prosperous as possible, it needs to advance its protections for women in general society, as well as in the job sector. By doing so Japan not only will become more progressive but also can help alleviate issues that affect the entire country—including, but not limited to, the problems associated with its large, aging population.

Keywords: Social Justice, Women’s Rights, Japan
