Japan ranks 19th out of 188 nations in the 2019 Gender Inequality Index making the country one of the worst performers of developed nations. It has the third highest wage gap amongst OECD nations as of 2017. Japanese women have a low presence in both upper-level position in politics and business. To overcome this, Japan must introduce women and family-friendly work environments.
