The paper shows that while women in Japan have made great strides during the 20th century, they still have a long way to go to catch up to the world's women in pay, job prospects and their standing in society. The paper discusses the many hours Japanese women spend on childcare and housework which leaves little time for leisure time and entertainment.
From the Paper:"Leisure time for women in Japan is much more common today than it was several decades ago. In fact, women taking classes, or enjoying golf and other recreation would have been looked at with disapproval, people would have thought they were neglecting their duties to pursue selfish pleasures. Today, they enjoy more freedom, but as in many other societies, working women with families still enjoy the least leisure time, and in Japan, their husband help even less with the necessary housework. Japanese women still have a long way to go to become equal in their society."
