Although Google is running a nice campagin, almost no one on the street here is talking about International Women’s Day!! They seemed to be more interested in so-called “White Day” – Men receive chocolates from women on the Valentine’s Day and will give candies to women in return on March 14 (Yes, I know. It’s quite strange!) .
Unfortunately, Japan is so much behind in gender equality.
The glass-ceiling index (2015): next to last among OECD countries
Gender Gap Index (2015): 101th place among 145 countries.
I love Japan, but I can’t deny these results. Actually, they reflect the realty. I really hope this situation will change!
