Women, Family and work in the Japanese Economy
EIJS (European Insitute of Japanese Studies) is giving a new seminar on September 13 titled “Women, Family and Work in the Japanese Economy.” This seminar is, for some unknown reason, not posted on their website, nor is it on the Swedish Embassy webpage. That is unfortunate, because the theme of the seminar sounds very interesting, and with a lack of advertising it will not get as much attention as it should.
In light of recent discussions in media and on the web, e.g the TIME article entitled The Wasted Asset, this seminar is very timely. (I first found that article via Neomarxisme where there is a lively discussion on the topic as well.
